Bake at 350ºF/180ºC for 45 to 50 min. Run a knife following the cutting pattern and pour warm syrup evenly and top with the saved ground pistachio (from the pistachio paste). Let rest to set for at least 5 hours prior eating allowing thus the syrup to penetrate within layers slowly. Store in sealed containers at room temp for weeks. Enjoy!
