First, preheat the oven to 175C ° (350 ° F). Grease a 23X33 cm baking dish
Press 450 grams of your favorite and desired mixed nuts. Then place in a medium bowl, add 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and mix.
Brush 1 cup of melted butter with filo sheets. Filo, or ready-made sheets of thin dough are available in the Turkish markets and hypermarkets of the city. You can also see how filo is made at home.
Defrost the purchased frozen filo before you start using it. Roll the dough sheets into a narrow strip according to the size of the baking dish to fit freely in it. Then cover the dough with a damp towel to keep it from drying out. Place two sheets of dough in a baking dish and knead the melted butter well on top. Sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons of the hazelnut mass and repeat the same procedures until you run out of ingredients.
Use 6 sheets of filo as the last layer of dough and knead the butter on top. Using a sharp knife, make 3 horizontal and 9 diagonal strips to get 36 rhombic pieces. Place the sliced baklava in a preheated oven and bake for 50 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
