Count me among the people who thought there was a mystery behind making Baklava, and was too mystified to attempt making it myself. This recipe simplifies it and makes even the novices among us feel like Greek Baklava gods and godesses. I make the recipe as is, with the addition of a 1/2 tsp of ground cardamon in the nuts. It adds a "bright" flavor. To make the drudgery of of buttering the layers easier, I re-purposed an empty bottle of spray "margarine" to use as a butter sprayer. Every 2nd layer, I spritz the sheet down. Works likea charm--just the right amount of butter. Even if you're on the fence about making this version, I say go for it. It's quicker than you think, easier than you could guess, and tastes heavenly.
