My easy baklava recipe


My easy Baklava…
We were watching a program on tv about Middle Eastern cooking and they were making baklava .My husband said he fancied some baklava so I improvised using what I had at hand.
I had 2 packets of ready rolled puff pastry .I opened one of the pastry on a baking tray. I melted 2/3 cup honey and added 2 teaspoons of orange flower water. In a food processor I crushed 3 cups of walnuts and mixed in 1 teaspoon of cinnamon .
I brushed the pastry with the honey mixture then sprinkled the walnuts ,drizzled the honey over the walnuts reserving some to drizzle over the cooked pastry . Put the other piece of puff pastry over ,crimped the edges all round. Brushed the top with some melted butter and baked in a 175 C oven until it was golden. Once out of the oven I drizzled the remaining honey mixture and sprinkled finely crushed pistachios on top. When it cooled slightly I cut into diamond shapes.
