Dough for 2 Large Baking Pans
5 lbs. flour
1 Tbsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking powder
6 egg whites slightly beaten
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup rendered butter
7 cups water or more
Sift flour, salt and baking powder into large pan. Push dry
ingredients to one side of pan. In other side of pan, add water,
egg whites, egg yolks and butter. Work flour into liquid gradually
until mixed. Knead thoroughly. Dough should be a soft
consistency. Cut and shape into balls the size of an orange. Roll
in cupped hands until smooth. Dust with cornstarch and set aside
for a few minutes. Pat out each ball to 1/8 inch thickness then
stretch out tissue thin and place directly onto generously buttered
baking pan. These sheets of dough may also be dried before placing
into baking pan. Place 25 sheets of dough in pan, brushing melted
butter between each sheet. Do not butter top sheet. Spread nut
filling and cover with 22 sheets.
NOTE: For each tray of Baklawa use 2 lb. of dough.
