Now, this is a keeper@ I wanted to make them, but had no pie crust mix. I did, however, have two store-brand rolled out refrigerated crusts, so I used them. To compensate for the sugar that was missing from the crust mix dough, I drizzled, very lightly, both crusts with honey. Not Baklava, but delicious in its own right and I will make again and again. It's easy and very tasty!
Oh goodness, this is so rich and good! I cheated a little, and used premade pie crust, which made this easy and quick! I sprinkled a little sugar over the bottom pie crust, then put in filling, and topped with the second pie crust. Thank you Jessica for a delicious dessert which I'm sure I'll be making again!
I am also phyllo challenged but have always wanted to taste baklava. This recipe was very tasty and easy to make. I bought the pre-made pie crusts and used walnuts. Next time I will use a level teaspoon of shortening to make the chocolate as mine was a little "waxy". Thank you JessicaK for posting this recipe!
I love these wedges. They are rich and very reminiscent of baklava. This year was my second time making them and I used brown sugar in place of white, very yummy change. I used prepared pie dough. For the chocolate I use the microwave. I take 3/4 cup chocolate chips and 1 1/2 TBLS butter, melt them together, place this in a pastry bag and pipe it onto the cookie wedges.
A great recipe! I even like it better than regular baklava, which is overpoweringly sweet for me!
This was so easy to make, and is really delicious! DH loved it-Thanks for posting this Jessica!
Excellent recipe for those of us who are phyllo challenged & still want the taste of baklava. I used walnuts & baked on a foil covered round baking pan. Baking time was 15 minutes. Thanks for sharing this!
