Here you go! Handmade Baklava! Between us, I don't think there are more pastries tastier than baklava. I'm telling you, it is dangerously delicious. Dozens of thin layers of dough brushed with melted butter, a nice thick layer of nuts in the center, and simple syrup absorbed throughout this celebration. Mamma mia!! After hundreds of messages I received from you guys, asking me to make baklava I have prepared for you a detailed recipe for this beauty, including the filo dough. You don't have to make the dough yourself even though it is so much fun. The filling is really up to you, any nut is welcome here. I made my baklava with Turkish pistachios and they worked so well! I highly recommend you invite friends and family over to share this pleasure with you, note it is so delicious you can easily eat the whole pan by yourself. I've eaten at least half of it already.
