This easy Greek baklava recipe is the perfect decadent sweet dessert made with everyday ingredients like phyllo dough, walnuts, butter, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla extract.
Covering the sheets of phyllo with a damp towel with prevent them from drying out whilst you assemble the baklava.
If the sheets tear before you layer them, overlap them as needed, and once baked, you won't be able to tell.
Let the syrup cool down before pouring it over the baklava. It should be at a lukewarm temperature.
