Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • ¾ cup ghee, melted (plus extra for brushing)
  • 3 cups pistachios (or walnuts), finely chopped
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 pound box pre-made phyllo, 9x14-inch sheets, room temperature

Simple Syrup

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Orange zest


  • 9" x 13" Baking Dish
  • Large Bowl
  • Small Saucepan
  • Step 1

    Install the Accessory Frame in the bottom level of the unit, then place the Pizza Stone on top.

  • Step 2

    Turn dial to select BAKE, set temperature to 350°F and set time to 50 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating (preheating will take approx. 10 minutes). 

  • Step 3

    Grease the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish with ghee. In a large bowl, combine the pistachios and ½ cup sugar. Unroll the phyllo and trim as needed to fit in the pan.  

  • Step 4

    Lay 1 ½ sleeves of phyllo dough (about 30 sheets) in the prepared pan. Evenly top with the nut mixture. Then place the remaining phyllo sheets on top.  

  • Step 5

    Pour the ¾ cup melted ghee over the baklava, tilting the pan to evenly cover. Cut the baklava into diamonds by making 4 cuts lengthwise and 9 cuts crosswise diagonally.

  • Step 6

    When unit is preheated and ADD FOOD and PRS STRT is displayed, open door and place baking dish on the stone. Close door and select START/STOP to begin cooking. 

  • Step 7

    To prepare the simple syrup, combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer, stirring occasionally until the sugar is completely dissolved, and the syrup is thick but still clear, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

  • Step 8

    When cooking is complete, open door, remove dish, and immediately pour cooled simple syrup evenly over the baklava and top with orange zest. Allow baklava to cool at room temperature for at least 2 hours before serving.
