Baklava is Eastern Mediterranean sweet that is absolutely delicious. Phyllo (paper thin sheets of dough) is layered with butter and a mixture of chopped walnuts, spices and honey. Once the dessert is baked, it is set aside to allow the sweet sticky honey to be soaked up by each layer of phyllo. If you are not a fan of walnuts, they can be substituted with pistachios. Baklava is a treat that is sure to be a hit.
