About this recipe: This is my delicious recipe for Turkish baklava, which friends always request I make. The spices are divine!

Being Greek Orthodox I took al the shortcuts my mom does, add some buttter to the nut recipe then you dont have to butter so much between the Phillo, and u dont have to thaw the Phillo out all the way it handles better partially thawed, simmer your syrup for at least 2 hours - 26 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
To echo someone earlier: This Is It. I've been dreaming of this recipe since the first time I tasted baklava, homemade by my best friend's mom 13 years ago After many disappointments from other recipes and storebought baklava, this is the sweet stuff that I remember -- so if you don't like sweet, check out another recipe. My tip: do NOT generously butter every single layer, or it'll end up dripping butter -- not the ideal baklava. I'll try spray butter next, or every 2 layers. Mmm! - 10 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
