    Sephardi Kitchen's Note:

    This is my favorite recipe for baklava- a decadent Mediterannean/Middle Eastern dessert, made of paper-thin filo dough, nuts, and a honey syrup.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 24

    Yield:

    pieces

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups honey
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
    • 1 tablespoon orange juice
    • 14 phyllo pastry sheets
    • 1 cup melted butter
    • 2 cups toasted almonds, and (pistachios or pecans will work too) or 2 cups walnuts (pistachios or pecans will work too)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In Advance: In a saucepan, bring the honey, water, sugar, orange rind and juice, and cinnamon to a boil. Boil over low heat for 10 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool.
    2. 2
      Grease a shallow baking pan. Line with 4 phyllo sheets, brushing each one with melted butter (use a pastry brush).
    3. 3
      Spread a layer of ground nuts evenly over the pyllo. Drizzle some melted butter and syrup on top.
    4. 4
      Cover with 2 additional sheets, brushing each with butter, and repeat this procedure 3 times. Cover the last layer of nuts/butter/syrup with the remaining sheets of phyllo (still brushing every sheet with butter).
    5. 5
      Press the philo against the rim of the pan, trim with a sharp knife if necessary. Cut through the top layers of phyllo diagonally to make about 24 equal diamond shapes.
    6. 6
      Bake in a 350-degree oven for 30 minutes. Increase the heat to 400 degrees F and bake 10-15 minutes more, or until golden brown.
    7. 7
      Pour cooled syrup on top and let the baklava cool. Slice all the way through the previous slices to make 24 diamond-shaped bars. Brush the top with the remaining butter.
