My friends and I were getting together for Greek nite and I decided to try this Baklava recipe. It was absolutely delicous. I was told that it tastes exactly like the Baklava from Greece.

Leaving the honey out wasn't so good. The honey is the key ingredient to this irressible greek favorite. This would be perfect with the honey in it. The honey adds the most flavor along with the other ingredients.

Good recipe--a friend of mine made baklava from this recipe... One thing I would change would be to use melted butter instead of margarine. I have been using a recipe from my Greek cookbook for years and it just seems to taste better with butter. Also, after cutting into diamond shapes I put a clove in each piece before baking. It adds just a hint of flavor and it looks nice too! But remember to remove the clove before eating!
