Turkish baklava is a traditional homemade pastry that is popular throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean regions. It is a sweet confection made with layers of thin phyllo dough that is filled with chopped nuts and (usually) sweetened with honey or syrup. The classic version of Turkish baklava is made with walnuts, but pistachios and almonds are also popular choices. Baklava is usually served as a dessert and is usually accompanied by a cup of Turkish coffee or tea. Baklava is a labor–intensive dish that requires patience and attention to detail. The dough is rolled out very thin and then layered with the chopped nuts. The layers are then brushed with melted butter or ghee and baked until golden brown. Once out of the oven, the baklava is drenched in a syrup made from sugar, honey, and water. This syrup helps to keep the pastry moist and gives it a sweet flavor. In Turkey, baklava is served for special occasions such as weddings, holidays, and other special events. It is also a popular street food and can be found in many Turkish cafés and bakeries. Baklava is a popular gift item and can be purchased in specialty stores

History of Turkish Baklava
The origin of Turkish Baklava is disputed, and there are many claims of its origin. Some say it was brought to Turkey by the Ottomans from Central Asia, while others claim it was first created in the kitchens of the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. The more accepted version, however, is that Baklava is an Ottoman–Turkish dish that was adopted and adapted from the cuisines of the former lands of the Ottoman Empire. The first written record of Baklava comes from Nizam al–Mulk’s 11th–century book, The Book of Government. This recipe, which is still used in modern Turkish cuisine, includes a dough filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with syrup. In the 16th century, the Ottoman court developed a new style of Baklava, which included pistachios and almonds. This version is known as the “double–layered Baklava” and is still popular in Turkey today. In the 18th century, the popularity of Baklava increased, and by the 19th century it had become a staple of the Ottoman cuisine. Today, Turkish Baklava continues to be enjoyed throughout the Middle East and beyond.
