Baklava is a traditional dessert made with layers of phyllo dough, nuts, and syrup. It is often served in a rectangular or square shaped dish, but can also be found in round or triangular shaped dishes. Baklava is typically made with walnuts or pistachios, but can also be made with almonds, hazelnuts, or even chocolate. The dough is layered with the nuts and then baked until golden brown. Once it is out of the oven, the baklava is then soaked in a syrup made with sugar, water, and spices. This gives the baklava its signature sweet and sticky flavor.
