Yesterday a friend and I made some baklava. We followed this recipe pretty much to a T.
We used the honey sauce, which was tasty and made the whole house smell heavenly.
Don't try to chop whole almonds. They are so hard that you really should start with slivered or slices almonds
Don't try to grind up cloves unless you have a spice grinder. Big chunks of cloves=badness
Don't.... follow this recipe to a T. It will be bottom heavy and stick to the pan pretty badly. I really recommend a few more layers of phyllo on the bottom than the recipe calls for. Also, probably more than 2 pieces between layers.
In general it is tasty- but we are going to try again with some changes.
