Baklava Dessert – From HideAway’s “Greek Out!”

Baklava dessert from HideAway’s “Greek Out!” Cooking Class 2015, at the Hideaway Country Inn, located in mid Ohio, Bucyrus

A Baklava dessert is normally prepared in large pans. Many layers of filo dough, separated with melted butter and vegetable oil, are laid in the pan. A layer of chopped nuts—typically walnuts or pistachios, but hazelnuts are also sometimes used—is placed on top, then more layers of filo.
