We've shortened the work, shortened the time, and shortened the cleanup of this traditional Greek dessert. One thing we didn't shorten is the taste!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 frozen puff pastry sheet (from a 17 -ounce package), slightly thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, melted
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
     
  2. On a lightly floured surface, with a rolling pin, roll out puff pastry sheet into a 12" x 14" rectangle. Cut in half lengthwise and place on prepared baking sheet.
     
  3. In a small bowl, combine the walnuts and honey. Spread half the mixture lengthwise along center of each dough half.
     
  4. Using a pastry brush or paper towel, moisten edges of pastry dough with some of the beaten egg. Evenly fold dough lengthwise over filling. Seal edges of dough tightly by pressing seams together with the tines of a fork.
     
  5. Brush tops of both rolls with beaten egg then bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven and lightly brush tops with melted butter. Cool 10 minutes before cutting diagonally into 2-inch pieces.
     
Note

After brushing baklava with butter, you can spoon the hot honey and butter drippings from the baking sheet over the tops (before they cool).

Love Greek greek food, & am Southern!

So much easier and a much better explanation of how to make these than the lightening quick baklava recipe I came in here for. Another member told us about this one, thank you thank you.

Kitchen Sink Pie

Our Kitchen Sink Pie was inspired by the famous "Kitchen Sink" ice cream dessert from Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor in Florida. Like the original, it's got everything but the kitchen sink, including an ice cream cone crust, piles of ice cream, and all sorts of sundae toppings!
