Baklava is a Turkish dessert that is also popular in Greek and Middle Eastern cuisine. It is made out of sweet dough pastry with nuts or pistachios, honey, lemon and cinnamon. The correct pronunciation of baklava is BAA-klah-vah.

Baklava can be kept at room temperature for several days. Do not cover it tightly with plastic wrap, as this will cause your phyllo to get soggy. Instead, use a clean tea towel or piece of cheesecloth to cover your baklava. This will keep it fresh and crispy. Baklava is usually served at room temperature. Storing at room temperature will preserve the crispness, but if you like your baklava chewy and a bit harder (not recommended), store it in the refrigerator.
