Ingredients

  • 16 oz
    walnuts finely chopped, makes 3 cups
  • 1/2 c
    granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp
    ground cinnamon
  • 1 pkg
    frozen phyllo dough, thawed 24 sheets
  • 1 c
    melted butter
  • 1 1/2 c
    honey

How to Make Baklava

Step-by-Step

  1. Grease cookie sheet or 9x13 baking dish. If using baking dish, cut sheets to fit. I line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and use full size of phyllo sheets.
  2. In bowl, combine walnuts, sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Melt butter in separate dish. Use pastry brush.
  4. Place one sheet and brush with butter. Be sure edges are covered. Repeat using five more sheets of phyllo. On top of these six layers sprinkle 1 cup of walnut mixture. Repeat layers until complete leaving a tad of nut mixture for top.
  5. Preheat oven to 300. Cut half way through layers on diagonal. This will make diamond shaped pieces. You will need a sharp knife and take your time when slicing.
  6. Just before it completes the baking cycle, heat honey in small sauce pan on stove. Remove baklava from oven and spoon honey over top. Cool in pan for one hour. Note: I used Jodi-Bees honey as it is freshly produced locally. Fresh honey does make a difference!
