IMG_3854.JPGHoliday baking kicks off with Baklava

Recipes adapted from Ree Drummond and Dana Velden

I added Hazelnuts and Maple syrup because we have some sitting around

I used 1/2 package of Phyllo so the base is a bit thinner and 1 stick of butter and it still taste pretty good

All I need to do is to work on the syrup so the top is not sticking to each other and become a big mash

Give a try, it’s actually very simple – butter phyllo, layer, layer, layer, sprinkle nuts and add more layers/ nuts/ butter
