1/2 Photos of Crisp, Flaky Baklava
1 hr 25 mins
There are many, many variations of baklava recipes out there. Most of them call for some variation of a sugar water syrup. This recipe is a bit different because it only uses pure honey over the top of the baklava. This makes for a much crispier, flakier baklava that the baklava that is readily available. This is the recipe that my Greek Grandma has used for decades, and now I am in charge of baking it every year for Easter dinner. It's an all-day affair in my house when I bake this, but it is worth it. I have had many people tell me that this is the best baklava they have ever tasted. Be sure and use high-quality honey. The better the honey, the better the baklava. Keep the stack of phyllo sheets covered with a damp towel while you are working, to keep them from drying out and getting brittle.
