    Cookin' in NJ's Note:

    This recipe was given to me by my dear friend. I remember making this with her as a child...we crushed the walnuts in a bag using hammers!!!! Now I use a food processor ;-) Anyhow, she adapted this family recipe to be more flaky and reduced the amount of sugar, which really creates a light and flavorful baclava.
