What a delicious recipe! We made one change--we doubled the syrup recipe. I found it to be better than traditional baklava. Enjoy!
I made this for the first time the other day, and everyone loved it. I'll definitely try this again.
I made this a while back and it was a huge hit. I did double the syrup as suggested. Putting the pecans,chocolate chips, cinnamon, and sugar in the Cuisinart as suggested by annbb worked well. I will be making this again.
Fantastic! Not traditional, but I'm not a traditionalist in alot of ways. My DH absolutely loves this! He never thought I could pull it off! Thanks.
This is SO GOOD! I have to admit it was a lot of work..but the outcome was definitely worth it! I had friends over last night for dinner/dessert..and they couldn't stop raving about it...and asking for more pieces (which my boyfriend denied them of). I doubled the orange syrup..I'd give this more than 5 stars if I could!
WOW! This is wonderful! This makes a lot but it all managed to get eaten without complaint. It is not as sweet as regular baklava which made the consumers very happy. A week later and they are still asking me if I have any left! I did double the syrup (a single recipe of it would not have even been close to enough).
Better than any baklava on the planet! My co-workers were all raving, and they ask me weekly when I'll be making more. Superb!
Mirj sorry it took so long to get this posted. Puter has been on fritz as well as way to many other things to explain. I made this back in January as a gift for my Nephew who has been working hard at moving me and fixing puter problems. It was not only easy, but totally and completely decadent!!! Definately a keeper for sure...sorry no pics as puter chewed up and spit out all stored pics.
Made it for our "Seder"/ Maundy Thursday dinner ~ absolutely fabulous everyone raved about it. Since I had no orange juice I made a traditional honey syrup and totally skipped the chocolate glaze. Awesome!!
These were delicious! Don't let working with phyllo scare you - it's much easier than you'd think. Just be sure to keep it covered so it doesn't dry out. I put the pecans, chocolate chips, cinnamon and 1/4 C. of the sugar together in the Cuisinart and pulsed until the pecans were finely ground. Perfect!
