Nona’S Baklava Recipe

RatingDifficultyBeginner

There is no one definitive recipe for Nona's Baklava. However, a traditional Baklava recipe would typically include a filling of chopped nuts, spices, and sugar, layered between sheets of phyllo dough. The phyllo dough is then brushed with melted butter and baked until crisp. Once cooled, the Baklava is drenched in a sweet syrup made with sugar, water, and lemon juice.
