Baklava

This is my 50th post……..so thought of posting a sweet.Happy to reach here with the support of family,friends and other bloggers…….….hope this support will continue for me to keep on going………Thanks a lot to all of them who supported me.
The famous Arabic sweet “Baklava”……………….the phyllodough filled with nuts and soaked in sugar syrup………..this can be made in many shapes,squares,diamond,fingers and small rectangles……I made this in small rectangle shapes.This really tasted awesome.That day we had some guests,they tasted it and said it was really good.It tasted more good than the shop one.I was so happy to hear that.One plate of baklava disappeared within seconds….………kids too loved this.Now got order for making this another day………… kids are saying it was not enough that day………….not only for them for me too!!!!But thinking of the calories I intake I have to control myself from making and eating this………once start I can’t stop having this………..really this is a delicious sweet!!!!!!!

13.Pour this syrup over the baked baklavas.
14.Allow the baklavas to absorb the syrup.
