Inspired by a cooking programme on Nat Geo People, I decided to just do baklava on a whim. Why? Because I had all the ingredients ready!
No measurements because everything was by gut and feel (and what I have at hand).
Ingredients: Phyllo pastry, nuts (pistachio, walnuts), sugar, butter, cinnamon.
I am just so surprised at how easy it is to make baklava at home! It won’t be the same as store bought one, but that’s even better because I can make it less sweet!
For the Sugar Syrup
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
1/2 cup honey
