Don’t let the complex instruction fool you… it IS simple, it’s just hard to find detailed directions. It’s really not a “science” like baking and pastry is, so fee free to play around a little! The important part is that you have everything prepared before you start to assemble with the dough, it can be finicky, but totally do-able! My mother in law is a purist and makes Baklava with only walnuts, sugar, and Karo syrup (and dough of course!). I wanted to experiment with a more complex palate and this is what I came up with! From researching recipes, it looks like Baklava is holy to some people: “ONLY butter!”, “ONLY rosewater!”, “ONLY walnuts/pistachios/etc.!” – Ummm… calm down. It’s ONLY a dessert! This is a recipe that I made by combining what looked best to me and what felt right at the time. It came out WONDERFULLY so I wanted to let you know what I did…
