How to make Baklava Rolls Recipe - Turkish Sweet Rolls

  1. To begin making the Baklava Rolls Recipe, the first step is to prep all the ingredients and keep them ready.

  2. Into a mixing bowl, combine all the filling ingredients - almond powder, walnut powder, pistachio powder, sugar, cinnamon powder and butter. Mix them well to combine.

  3. Take the phyllo sheets and fold it into half and butter the side which is facing up. 

  4. Note: Phyllo sheets should be thawed completely before use. Place the rolls seam-side down on the baking sheet for best results. Do not crowd the rolls in the baking pan else they will lose shape.

  5. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the filling mixture at the short end in one line and roll the sheet. As you roll, keep applying butter on the rolled side up.

  6. Don't roll completely till the end as yet. We will fill the dry fruit filling mixture again halfway through before rolling it to the end.

  7. Once halfway through rolling add about 2 tablespoons of the filling mix along the same short side. Now roll the sheet completely till the end.

  8. Repeat the same procedure for the remaining sheet. Cut each roll into 3 pieces. Arrange the Baklava rolls into a baking sheet. Brush the rolls again lightly with butter.

  9. Preheat the oven at 180 degree C; place the Baklava rolls in the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until it turns golden brown.

Method for making the Syrup
  1. To make the syrup, boil the sugar and water until you get one thread consistency.

  2. This will take about 15 minutes. Once the consistency is reached, stir in the lemon juice.

Final Step for the Baklava Rolls
  1. Once the Baklava rolls are baked and the syrup is just warm, pour the syrup over the rolls.

  2. Allow the rolls to soak in the syrup for about 8 hours in room temperature.

  3. Finally, garnish with broken pistachios for delicious tasting Baklava Rolls.
