Baklawa (pronounced bahk-LAY-wa and even bit-LAY-wa, and at times: bit-LAY-wee) will be the Lebanese pastry of phyllo, clarified butter, nuts, and flower water basic syrup. Lebanese baklawa is different in taste than Greek or some Turkish baklavas. Baklawa is built in a number of shapes and sizes, but do-it-yourself baklawa is often rolled or layered and Slash into diamonds. The here entire baklawa bakers I have recognized put together the varied portions of the pastry in advance, so that on baking working day baklawa is especially an assembly task of phyllo, nuts, chopping, buttering, baking, [smelling the aroma] and drenching in syrup. The top. Oh, and ingesting.
