Baklawa (pronounced bahk-LAY-wa or even little bit-LAY-wa, and often: bit-LAY-wee) is the Lebanese pastry of phyllo, clarified butter, nuts, and flower h2o easy syrup. Lebanese baklawa differs in flavor than Greek or some Turkish baklavas. Baklawa is produced in many different sizes and styles, but selfmade baklawa is typically rolled or layered and cut into diamonds. All website the baklawa bakers I have recognized get ready the various portions of the pastry in advance, to ensure that on baking day baklawa is principally an assembly challenge of phyllo, nuts, reducing, buttering, baking, [smelling the aroma] and drenching in syrup. The end. Oh, and feeding on.
