Oh man! Now I'm hungry for baklava! I've never made it. Is it hard to make?

It's actually super easy and only 5 ingredients (filo, sugar, butter, lemon, pistachio) I don't like the ones with 3 types of nuts and spices. I just make plain pistachio ones and they are much better then the ones with walnuts and spices as pistachios are superior and don't need spices to help it. The recipe I use is Syrian from aromas of Aleppo. Let me know if you want it

No honey? I thought the Greek recipe used honey, Syrian might be different. Please post your recipe, Siegal!

I love baklava, I love both pistachio and walnut, but I walnut is my favorite, I love walnuts.

We have a Lebanese deli nearby where they make it, some of the best I've ever had.

There are a lot of different versions as you travel around that area of the world. Spices vary or are omitted, nuts may vary and the sweetener can vary.

Our version uses simple syrup with lemon in place of the honey, walnuts in place of the pistachios with the addition of cinnamon and a touch of clove.
