    katheros's Note:

    Custard-filled phyllo! Being from a Greek family, baklava is a HUGE part of our family gatherings. We found out this past year that my cousin is allergic to cinnamon, so I went looking for recipes that didn't require them. I made this without the cinnamon or cloves in the syrup and it was a little too bland for me. If you like a more flavorful dessert, definitely add them! This makes a lot of custard, so large definitely means large! This does pretty well made a day ahead of time, or freeze it and thaw in the refrigerator.
