Baklava Recipe, How To Make Baklava Recipe

Baklava is a rich, sweet pastry made of layers of filo, filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup or honey.

This baklava is flaky, crisp and tender and I love that it isn’t overly sweet. It’s basically a party in your mouth. I am a huge fan of baklava and this is the BEST baklava recipe I have ever tried.
