Baklava is a crispy, rich, sweet pastry made of layers of phyllo dough filled with nuts and drenched with honey syrup. This ethnic Middle Eastern confection has been in my mind for several months, and this weekend made its grand entry into my kitchen. Few months back a traditional Turkish restaurant opened in our area and they had the best Baklava’s I have tasted. Ever since I ate in that restaurant, I wanted to make this pastry, but just the labor made me postponing it. Once I actually started making, it was not too bad. More than difficult, I would call this a labor intensive desert. Once we get in the flow, it just gets easier. The phyllo dough used in this pastry is readily available in most of the supermarkets.
