Baklawa (pronounced bahk-LAY-wa and even little bit-LAY-wa, and from time to time: bit-LAY-wee) may be the Lebanese pastry of phyllo, clarified butter, nuts, and flower water straightforward syrup. Lebanese baklawa is different in taste than Greek or some Turkish baklavas. Baklawa is made in a number of sizes and styles, but do-it-yourself baklawa is usually here rolled or layered and cut into diamonds. Every one of the baklawa bakers I've recognized put together the varied portions of the pastry in advance, to ensure on baking working day baklawa is especially an assembly venture of phyllo, nuts, reducing, buttering, baking, [smelling the aroma] and drenching in syrup. The tip. Oh, and having.
