Baklawa (pronounced bahk-LAY-wa or simply bit-LAY-wa, and at times: little bit-LAY-wee) is definitely the Lebanese pastry of phyllo, clarified butter, nuts, and flower h2o easy syrup. Lebanese baklawa differs in taste than Greek or some Turkish baklavas. Baklawa is created in many different shapes and sizes, but baklawa handmade baklawa is typically rolled or layered and Slice into diamonds. All the baklawa bakers I have recognised prepare the assorted portions of the pastry upfront, to make sure that on baking day baklawa is mainly an assembly task of phyllo, nuts, slicing, buttering, baking, [smelling the aroma] and drenching in syrup. The top. Oh, and eating.
