Baklava
Super recipe, and great results my first time out. Like the other reviews suggested, I made an extra half syrup recipe, used a food processor for the nuts, added 1/8 tsp clove and some sugar to the nut mixture, and used a spray bottle for the melted butter. This last tip helped me cut the butter by half, and believe me, I covered each layer with butter. Cooling before slicing helped, as did chilling the syrup. Very tasty recipe, labor intensive, but worth it. Resist the temptation to use more than a few tablespoons of nut mixture per layer. I thought the first few nut layers looked to sparse, so I added another TB or two. This made the layer too nutty when baked. As I started to run short on the nuts and made the last 5 layers or so with the recommended 2-3 TB of nuts per layer, it produced a much lighter and enjoyable result. So in short, don't overload the nuts!
