We loved this recipe, it's just scrumptious! The second time I made it I did do one t hing slightly differently: I sprinkled the filling over the phyllo sheets, then rolled it over a 1/4 inch dowel, slightly scrunched it in from both sides toward the middle of the dowel, then cut it into small bars. Both ways are great! Thanks Land-o-Lakes.
I tried it. I am going back to making real Baklava like I have been doing for the last 30 years.
