Easy Baklava

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
I took a tray to the office and everyone was raving about it! and just finished a second tray for a Greek themed dinner party. I used a walnut/pistachio blend with cardamom instead of cinnamon. for the syrup, instead of lemon I used dried orange peel the first time, and a clementine peel the second, both were delicious. I found the best way to cut it is to thickly butter before the last layer of dough, let it cool and harden a minute after the dough is on, the score the first layer with a metal spatula before cutting all the way through. and then butter the top layer after it's been cut. the dough doesn't stick to my hands and knife and peel away as much that way. Also, I think I had significantly fewer nuts, than suggested, so I added a few layers of sugar and spice, 1 Tbs of sugar and a light sprinkle of cardamom or cinnamon. Delish!
