Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place the almonds, walnuts, apricots, bread crumbs, sugar, cinnamon, ground cloves, and salt in a food processor. Run the machine until the mixture is very finely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of the melted butter and the honey and stir to combine.
  • On a dry work surface place 1 sheet of phyllo. Using a pastry brush and the remaining melted butter, lightly cover the entire sheet of phyllo with melted butter. Cover the first sheet with a second sheet of phyllo and brush with melted butter. Continue until there is a stack of 6 sheets of phyllo. Cut the stacked phyllo rectangle into 12 equal pieces (Cut lengthwise into 4 pieces and widthwise into 3 pieces.)
  • Gently press each cut piece of phyllo into the mini-muffin tin cups. Press 1 tablespoon of the nut mixture into each of the phyllo cups. Gather the ends of each of the phyllo squares and twist to make a sachet shape. Continue shaping the remaining sachets in the other mini-muffin tin. Bake until the edges of the phyllo are golden, about 20 to 25 minutes. When cool enough to handle, remove the baklava sachets and transfer to a serving plate.

    I saw this being made on Everyday Italian and it looked so simple,as the title states and it really is!I love the taste of baklava and these are fantastic little baklava bundles. I made 24 "parcels" but I had to make an extra 1/2 recipe for the filling.So if you are making this I recommend making the filling recipe as it states plus another 1/2 recipe.I used regular size muffins pans. Mine baked for about 15 minutes in convection oven. These would be great when you have company or Christmastime.The cinnamon & cloves remind me of Christmas.I will definately make these tasty morsels again!
