Yummy yummy. I had some Baklava at a Lebanese restaurant recently that was just sinful, so I thought I'd try my own. I only used half of the phyllo dough, half the nuts, and half the butter (margarine actually... and melted... spreads better), but I did 1.5 times the sauce. I substituted Splenda for sugar (which has worked for everything I've baked so far... including creme brulee). It was quite time consuming, especially because store-bought walnuts aren't very finely chopped. And it was my first time using Phyllo (I'm a big fan of puff pastry dough though), so that took some getting used to. All in all, it was very messy, but very yummy straight out of the oven. I hope that it will congeal a little more in the fridge overnight... we shall see!
