Armenian Baklava

Spring has sprung, have been spring cleaning big time... its very exciting! I can't wait for summer! The whole month of march has been extremely warm in Montreal, we've been having above average temperatures (16 degrees celsius) which has been truly amazing, we can see the grass and trees will be blooming anytime now hopefully... Today was very strange because I woke up to find -2 outside, and snow falling.... it has been like this all day long! It has been nice to stay in all day and cook whilst watching the snow fall... very romantic... except i'm sharing this moment with Anne-Claire...! Anyhow, I made these scrumptious baklavas and followed the recipe of my grandma Mady (yay she made it onto the blog!). They are very easy to make and just soooo yummy!
  • 500g walnuts (broken into pieces/powdered form)
  • Phyllo pastry
  • 1 1/2 stick of butter
  • 400g sugar
  • 2 cups of water
  • lemon juice

  1. Preheat oven at 200 degrees. 
  2. On a baking tray, set on sheet of phyllo pastry and cover with melted butter using a brush. 
  3. Put a second sheet, and cover with butter again. 
  4. Same with the third sheet. 
  5. On the fourth sheet, put the walnuts. Cover with a new sheet. 
  6. With the new sheet, repeat steps 1-4. 
  7. Finish your baklava with 6 phyllo sheets, buttered in between. 
  8. Butter the last sheet on the top for it to get this golden brown aspect. 
  9. Cut into triangles or squares before cooking. 
  10. Put in the oven for about 45 minutes. 
  11. In a pan, mix the water, sugar and a few drops of lemon to get sugar syrup. 
  12. Once you have removed the baklava from the oven, pour the syrup all over. 
  13. Let cool. 
  14. Enjoy!

* You could try putting in pistachios, raisins or cinnamon. I have even tried maple syrup baklava! Up to you!
