Baklava

Enjoy this classic Mediterranean dessert!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16 oz. package) Phyllo dough (room temp)
  • 1 1/4 cups butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cups pistachio, finely ground
  • 1 1/4 cups walnuts, finely ground
  • 1 cup Honey syrup
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a sauté pan and set aside. Brush 9x13x2-inch baking pan with melted butter. Layer one sheet of phyllo on bottom of pan. Brush with butter and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar. Repeat these steps until half the phyllo is used, folding the extra phyllo over on top. Mix the ground nuts together in a mixing bowl. Add half of the cooled honey syrup and mix well. Place mixture on top of phyllo and spread evenly to cover phyllo. Place a sheet of phyllo on top of nut mixture and repeat step 6 until all phyllo is used, brushing the top layer with a thin coating of butter. Bake in center of the oven for about 45 minutes or until top layer is golden brown. Drizzle the remaining honey syrup over the top and allow to cool completely.
