Baklava No. 5


I had this Greek pastry for the first time in a restaurant and I was not overly thrilled with it. So when I ran across this recipe and saw how easy is was to make I decided to try it. I liked my version much better, which will no doubt cause an uproar. So to anyone who has tried this dessert I want you to make this one and let me know if you like it, maybe it tastes nothing like it is suppose to.

4 cups walnuts
finely chopped, or pistachios
¼ cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup butter
1 x phyllo (filo) pastry sheets
16 ounce package
1 cup sugar
½ cup water
¼ cup honey
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a bowl, combine the nuts, sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Grease a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish with some of the melted butter. Unroll phyllo dough sheets (keep dough covered with plastic wrap while assembling).

Place one sheet of phyllo in baking dish; brush with butter. Top with a second sheet; brush with butter. Fold short ends under to fit dish.

Sprinkle with about ¼ cup nut mixture. Repeat 18 times, layering two sheets, brushing with butter and sprinkling with nut mixture. Top with remaining dough; brush with butter. Cut into 2-in. diamonds or squares with a sharp knife.

Bake at 350℉ (180℃). for 45 to 55 minutes in until golden brown.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the syrup ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Pour over warm baklava. Cool on a wire rack.

Yield: about 3 dozen.
