    Judy from Hawaii's Note:

    This recipe was given to me years ago by a friend who was known as the "go to person" for desserts at work. It does takes some short cuts & purists may not like that. But it sure does taste good & it is SO much easier than traditional baklava. I prefer this recipe to the ones with honey.

      This couldn't have been easier to put together. I used other reviewers' suggestion to divide the phyllo dough into 3 different layers instead of 2. I then divided the filling between the layers. The baklava was delicious and very authentic tasting. If I made it again, I might double the filling as well. It doesn't need it, but it would make it even yummier!

      Loves it! I made this today as a gift to send out. I used 2 cups of walnuts and divided the phyllo dough into three parts instead of two. I added Orange Blossom water to the syrup mixture. Delicious! Thank you :)

      I had Baklava growing up every Christmas, my uncle made the long, time-consuming, overwhelming recipe. I NEVER thought I would be able to re-create a comparable version and here it is!!! I burn water and I made this and everyone LOVED it!! Yeah. Thank you!
