Greek Baklava
August 12, 2005

I have made this recipe numerous times and it is always a huge hit. In fact it just won best of show at the county fair in the culinary division! A few modifications I have made... I use toasted pecans for the nuts. I mix 1/4 cup sugar in with the cinnamon and nuts. I make the syrup first and allow it to cool while I put together the baklava and bake it, then I can pour cooled syrup onto hot baklava (this helps keep it from becoming soggy). I also use only 1/2 cup of water and a full cup on honey in the syrup. I usually need more butter than called for also. I am so thankful to Donna for posting this recipe. She has made a lot of us look like pro's. And thanks to everyone else who has written reviews with their tips here and there. You know a recipe is great when over 175 people take the time to write a review on it!
