Baklawa Fekia is a traditional Tunisian pastry made with a delicious blend of sugar, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, wheat flour, olive oil, water, natural rose water, and glucose syrup. This sweet and nutty treat is a favorite of many, and is especially popular during special occasions and celebrations.
At Masmoudi Patisserie in Tunisia, the baklawa fekia is made by hand with great care and attention to detail. The process begins with the preparation of the dough, which is made from wheat flour, olive oil, water, and a pinch of salt. The dough is kneaded until it reaches the perfect consistency, then rolled out into thin sheets.
Next, the nut filling is prepared by mixing together finely ground almonds, hazelnuts, and pistachios with sugar and a touch of natural rose water. This mixture is then spread evenly on each layer of the dough, before the entire pastry is rolled up into a log shape.
Once the log is formed, it is sliced into individual portions and arranged in a baking dish. A generous drizzle of glucose syrup is then poured over the top, which helps to create a sweet and sticky glaze.
The baklawa fekia is then baked in the oven until golden brown and crispy on the outside, while still soft and chewy on the inside. Once cooled, the pastry is ready to be enjoyed as a delicious dessert or sweet snack.
Masmoudi Patisserie takes great pride in the handmade process of making their baklawa fekia, ensuring that each pastry is crafted with the utmost professionalism and care. The result is a truly authentic and delicious treat that captures the rich flavors and traditions of Tunisian cuisine.
