    I can't claim this as my own since it was found on another on line site. My kids had as much fun helping make this recipe as they did eating it.

      This is a very good recipe but I was searching for something different.My sister-in-law's mother was czheck and would send baklava to me every Christmas but I would swear it had apples in it.It was soo very good that my family would get worried she had not made it that I am still looking for a recipe like this that has the apples in it.I used extra nuts in this one because her's was chock full of them.Thanks for the recipe.

      I have been making this for years (found on another website also) I use a mix of almonds and walnuts. Cut this before it bakes! If not, you'll have a big a mess. I make this for potlucks and functions due to its large size. This is my husbands favourite!!!

      Wow, I would have to say this dessert was amazing!! I have never had this before or even heard of it. I was searching for a Greek dessert and found it, so I do not have a clue as to what it is to taste like. But I am so pleased that it turned out. It is so simple to make, I have never worked with phyllo dough before so I was very nervous to make this. It was perfect. I did melt the butter before putting it on the phyllo dough, it did not specify but I thought that it would be better if I did that.
