Top Rated Baklava Recipes

Again, with that honey thing. Baklava has nothing to do with the Jewish tradition, but there’s something in the aching sweetness of its syrup that ensures future sweetness.  Making baklava is an unusual process. You assemble and bake relatively austere rolls of phyllo, butter, and walnuts. When you take them out of the oven, you pour a scented, sweet syrup all over the rolls and let them sit for a full 24 hours. Don't overlook that: A FULL 24 HOURS. This is good, because it means you can make the sweets long before you need them, but bad, because there's no instant gratification in baklava. Plan accordingly.

Armenian recipe preparations tend to be time-consuming. Never wanting to spend any more time in the kitchen than necessary, shortcuts had to be created for some of our family favorites. Without a doubt, the most popular Armenian dessert is paklava (baklava to non-Armenians). Flaky, buttery layers of phyllo dough, with a center layer of chopped nuts and cinnamon, then drizzled with a simple syrup. Love it, but this takes too long, so here’s what I do to save time… Instead of using phyllo dough sheets for this baklava, I purchase bite-sized, premade phyllo cups (15-count per box) in the freezer section of my local grocery store. What a time-saver! This works in other recipes, too. Click here to see What Is... Baklava?
