Easy Baklava Recipe – EXTREMELY easy and you’ll love how everyone thinks it took you all day to make it!

  • Prep Time: 30 mins
  • Cook Time: 50 mins
  • Total Time: 2 hours
  • Yield: 36 (1 9x13 inch dish) 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 pound chopped nuts
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (16 ounce) package phyllo dough
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Instructions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9×13 inch baking dish.

Step 2
Toss together cinnamon and nuts. Unroll phyllo and cut whole stack in half to fit the dish. Cover phyllo with a damp cloth while assembling the baklava, to keep it from drying out.

Step 3
Place two sheets of phyllo in the bottom of the prepared dish. Brush generously with butter. Sprinkle 2 to 3 tablespoons of the nut mixture on top. Repeat layers until all ingredients are used, ending with about 6 sheets of phyllo. Using a sharp knife, cut baklava (all the way through to the bottom of the dish) into four long rows, then (nine times) diagonally to make 36 diamond shapes.

Step 4
Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and crisp, about 50 minutes.

Step 5
While baklava is baking, combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Stir in honey, vanilla and lemon or orange zest; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.

Step 6
Remove the baklava from the oven and immediately spoon the syrup over it. Let cool completely before serving. Store uncovered.
