Baklawa (pronounced bahk-LAY-wa as well as bit-LAY-wa, and in some cases: little bit-LAY-wee) may be the Lebanese pastry of phyllo, clarified butter, nuts, and flower drinking water easy syrup. Lebanese baklawa is different in flavor than Greek or some Turkish baklavas. Baklawa is produced in a variety of sizes and shapes, but home made baklawa is usually rolled or layered and Slash into diamonds. All of the baklawa bakers I've recognised get ready the varied portions of the pastry beforehand, to ensure that on baking day baklawa is especially an assembly challenge of phyllo, nuts, chopping, buttering, baking, more info [smelling the aroma] and drenching in syrup. The top. Oh, and taking in.
