Recipe of Baklava


This is probably the most famous Greek dessert. Its origin is Turkish but over the years it has been known as a Greek sweet. Baklava is mostly made at Christmas or on special occasions.

- 500 gr filo pastry
- 800 gr of chopped almond kernel
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- carnation cloves
- 1 teacup of butter
- 2 teacups of sugar
- 1 teacup of honey
- lemon juice
- 2 vanillas

Mix the almond kennel with the cinnamon and the carnation. Then, into a well-buttered pan, lay four well-buttered filo pastries. Sprinkle some filling and lay two more filo pastries on it. Do the same for all the filo pastries until you have four of them left for the last layer. Cut the baklava, as it is into the pan, in rhombs. Heat the rest of the butter into a casserole and pour it all over baklava. Then bake the sweet in a medium temperature for about 45 minutes. In the meanwhile, into a casserole, put the sugar, the honey, one and a half cup of water, the vanillas and the lemon juice. Boil for about 5 minutes. Remove the foam and when the sweet is baked, pour the syrup all over it. Remember that the sweet should be hot. Baklava is served cold. To make it more tasty, you can add nuts into the filling.
