Baklawa (pronounced bahk-LAY-wa or perhaps bit-LAY-wa, and from time to time: bit-LAY-wee) may be the Lebanese pastry of phyllo, clarified butter, nuts, and flower h2o uncomplicated syrup. Lebanese baklawa is different in flavor than Greek or some Turkish baklavas. Baklawa is made in a number baklawa of sizes and styles, but selfmade baklawa is often rolled or layered and Slice into diamonds. Each of the baklawa bakers I've known prepare the different aspects of the pastry in advance, in order that on baking working day baklawa is especially an assembly project of phyllo, nuts, reducing, buttering, baking, [smelling the aroma] and drenching in syrup. The tip. Oh, and feeding on.
