Easy Baklava Recipe

Kidzapp N/A Kidzapp

Super simple to make and absolutely delicious! For big kids: have them measure out the ingredients.


1 pound chopped nuts

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 (16 ounce) packaged phyllo dough

1 cup butter, melted

1 cup white sugar

1 cup water

1/2 cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

--STEP 1--

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish.

--STEP 2--

Toss together cinnamon and nuts. Unroll phyllo and cut whole stack in half to fit the dish. Cover phyllo with a damp cloth while assembling the baklava, to keep it from drying out.

--STEP 3--

Place two sheets of phyllo in the bottom of the prepared dish. Brush generously with butter. Sprinkle 2 to 3 tablespoons of the nut mixture on top. Repeat layers until all ingredients are used, ending with about 6 sheets of phyllo. Using a sharp knife, cut baklava (all the way through to the bottom of the dish) into four long rows, then (nine times) diagonally to make 36 diamond shapes.

--STEP 4--

Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and crisp, about 50 minutes.

--STEP 5--

While baklava is baking, combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Stir in honey, vanilla and lemon or orange zest; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.

--STEP 6--

Remove the baklava from the oven and immediately spoon the syrup over it. Let cool completely before serving. Store uncovered.
