    Shabby Sign Shoppe's Note:

    This baklava is decadent and spot on to any I've ever tried in Greek cafes or restaurants. Allow to sit overnight or at least 8 hours before serving to allow syrup to settle in. I sub the nuts for what I have on hand and find the pecans pack the most flavor and like to sub some of the walnuts for almonds if I have them available.
