My friends and I were getting together for Greek nite and I decided to try this Baklava recipe. It was absolutely delicous. I was told that it tastes exactly like the Baklava from Greece.

Leaving the honey out wasn't so good. The honey is the key ingredient to this irressible greek favorite. This would be perfect with the honey in it. The honey adds the most flavor along with the other ingredients.

Good recipe--a friend of mine made baklava from this recipe... One thing I would change would be to use melted butter instead of margarine. I have been using a recipe from my Greek cookbook for years and it just seems to taste better with butter. Also, after cutting into diamond shapes I put a clove in each piece before baking. It adds just a hint of flavor and it looks nice too! But remember to remove the clove before eating!

This was delicious, it is my husband's favorite dessert and now I can make it at home. Once we drove around for an hour looking for a place that sold Baklava, now we won't have to do that anymore!!! We gave it away to several friends who called back to rave about it. Thanks sooooo much. Kerry Bennett

This recipe was very easy to make, and discounting the actual baking time, was quite quick. It was a little too sweet for me, and the next time I make it I'll probably cut back on the sugar used in the sauce, but it was a big hit.

Yum! My husband and I ate the whole thing (not good, I know!) One thing I might change is maybe take out about a quarter of the walnuts because it has a very thick center.
