Baklava

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I just made this for the first time and it's very good! I followed the advice of reviewer Sandra Lee who's been making this for 30 years along with the posted recipe. The changes I made on advice from Sandra were the amount of butter. I used only about an 1/8 of a cup at most, not one cup as the recipe suggests! The reduction in butter did not take away from the end result one bit. I also did not cut through to the bottom of the pastry before cooking but to within a half inch, also on advise from Sandra Lee. This produced an evenly moist product. I also used more honey in the sauce as suggested by yet another reviewer. That added a rich honey flavor. All family members loved this, even ones who haven't cared for store bought in the past. Delicious! Thank you Sandra Lee for the expert advise!!
