Baklava has absolutely nothing to do with Labor Day or the start of football season - other than one tray feeds a crowd of sweet tooths. So perhaps you should consider whipping up a batch for a unique end to the barbecue this weekend. You may recall walnuts are most often used, but I read that in some towns in Turkey pistachios and almonds are common. That was exciting to me because then I could make it local (almond and pistachio trees abound in NorCal) - along with honey from Oakland. Plan ahead though - after it's cooked you need to soak it in the honey syrup for at least three hours.

A professional essay writer can tackle any academic subject and can provide you with a high-quality paper in a timely manner. Their experience and expertise in writing will help you boost your grades.

With the right writer, you can enjoy a high-quality essay while avoiding countless hours of stress. The service's writers are available 24/7, so you can always count on a timely delivery of your paper.
You can also opt for a service that can do my paper for me cheaply, but only if you choose one that's reliable. Cheap writing services are unreliable and may not complete your project on time. Therefore, you must choose a reputable service that will do it on time and meets your needs. You may not want to spend too much on a cheap service that will only end up costing you more money in the long run.
If you're worried about plagiarism, consider hiring a research paper writer. You can contact them directly and get a finished paper within minutes. And the best part is, it's legal! As long as you choose a reputable writing company, you'll be safe. They never break the law and deliver non-plagiarized content.

Moreover, you need to ensure that the paper writer you're hiring is reputable and can deliver the type of work you need. There are many freelance writers online that will do the job for you, so you need to be sure that the writer you hire can deliver a quality paper. However, you should also check the online reviews of the company you're choosing before ordering from them. You should order research papers only when you're certain that the service you're choosing will meet your expectations.

Ingredients

  • 2 cup pistachios
  • 1 cup blanched almonds
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 16 oz whole wheat phyllo, about 16 sheets, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup light or soy butter, melted
  • 1 cup honey
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 lemon, half juiced and cut 2" zest

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Puree pistachios and almonds together until very finely chopped. Mix together with 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon and cloves. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile spray a large casserole dish or cookie sheet with cooking spray. Lay 2 sheets of phyllo gently on sheet. Brush with butter. Repeat four times until there are 8 sheets down - the top layer brushed with butter.
  4. Spread 3 cups of nut mixture over phyllo (you should have about 1 cup left). Repeat step #3 until all sheets are on the tray - every two brushed with butter, including the top sheet.
  5. Cut phyllo with a sharp knife diagonally in both directions. Bake for 45 minutes. Check every 15 minutes or so, and if it looks like it's drying out too much spray the top with cooking spray.
  6. Remove and add remaining cup of nuts, then bake 5 minutes more. Remove from oven and let cool.
  7. Meanwhile in a medium pot over medium heat, add remaining 1 cup of sugar, honey, 2 cups of water, cloves, cinnamon stick, lemon juice and lemon zest. Bring to a boil, then turn off heat and let steep for 15 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick and lemon zest.
  8. Drizzle honey syrup over the baklava and let sit at least 3 hours or overnight.
