Baklawa (pronounced bahk-LAY-wa or perhaps bit-LAY-wa, and at times: bit-LAY-wee) could be the Lebanese pastry of phyllo, clarified butter, nuts, and flower h2o simple syrup. Lebanese baklawa differs in taste than Greek or some Turkish baklavas. Baklawa is made in many different styles and sizes, but home made baklawa is usually rolled or layered and Slice into diamonds. Most of the baklawa bakers I have recognised prepare the varied here elements of the pastry upfront, so that on baking day baklawa is mainly an assembly job of phyllo, nuts, cutting, buttering, baking, [smelling the aroma] and drenching in syrup. The end. Oh, and taking in.
