I had been looking for an easy baklava recipe for over a week and finally realized that there is a recipe for it on the back of the ready-made phyllo pastry boxes!
I got two phyllo pastries from the grocery store and followed the directions on the back and the baklava turned out really good!
The hardest part was chopping the walnuts into really small pieces. It wouldn't have been a problem if I had a food processor but I didn't.
And I didn't put the walnuts as one single layer. I brushed on some butter and sprinkled some walnuts every 3-4 layers of phyllo dough. I think it came out really good. And it's so easy, you just let it turn slightly brown in the oven and then pour the sugar syrup over it and that's it! Who would think that something so tasty would be so easy to make.
