My big fat Greek baklava

Enogastronomista

Baklava is  a rich, sweet pastry popular in Middle Eastern countries made of layers of phyllo filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup or honey.

Baklava is normally prepared in large pans. Many layers of filo dough, separated with melted butter  are laid in the pan. A layer of chopped nuts—typically walnuts,pistachios or almonds  is placed  on top, then more layers of phyllo.  Most recipes have multiple layers of phyllo and nuts, though some have only top and bottom pastry.

Greek version of baklava is  made with 33 dough layers, referring to the years of Christ’s life.
