This is very good. Just loved it. My neighbour first tasted an authentic Baklava and said this recipe was the second best he has ever tasted. Thank-you for posting it.

This was great, but only used half of the sauce.

This recipe started great but ended in disaster. The amount of syrup is FAR too much, and my baklava was floating. Also, the syrup needs to be cooked at least two or 3 minutes longer, as it was still watery, leaving the cooled pastry a soggy mess. I've made baklava before with success, but this recipe needs overhauling.

This is a great dessert that will blow the socks off of any crowd. The flavors meld well (not too sugary), and the light, buttery flavor of the phyllo dough really ties everything together. I agree that the instructions were very clear and conicse. Wonderful dish.

This was totally awesome!! My only useful comment aside from raving about how awesome it was is that I somehow managed to only use half a pound of phyllo dough. I used Athens brand, about 20 sheets, maybe the brand makes a difference in the weight/sheet ratio. I had about twice as much syrup as I needed too.

I made this for the dessert table at a friend's wedding. We set it out and people just went nuts. The tips in the instructions, like not cutting through the bottom layer, made all the difference.
