Many people think the traditional way to make baklava is with walnuts and syrup, although there are many different recipe variations from Greece and all over the world. One of my favourites is the Turkish version which is made with pistachios, and the syrup includes rosewater. There are also a few modern versions that include chocolate, like chocolate dipped baklava. Here is a recipe for covered baklava with pistachios!
Baklava is a Greek dessert pastry consisting of layered phyllo dough and chopped nuts soaked in a sweet syrup. Traditionally this is a very rich and time consuming dessert to make. So I lightened it up and created a baklava that's a much more approachable. Oh, and it's delicious too!
