How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix walnuts, sugar and spices; set aside.
  • Beat cream cheese, 1/4 cup of the honey and the vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
  • Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Place layers of the phyllo sheets in 13x9-inch baking pan, brushing each layer with butter and sprinkling a rounded tablespoonful of the walnut mixture over every other layer of phyllo.
  • Spread top with cream cheese mixture.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cream cheese mixture is set.
  • Heat remaining 1/4 cup honey; drizzle over baklava.
  • Cool to room temperature.
  • Cut into 20 squares to serve.
  • Keep phyllo sheets covered with a sheet of plastic wrap or parchment and a damp towel until ready to use
  • Cover with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator up to 2 days. For best flavor, remove from refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving.

    as a 1st generation born Greek, I am abit skeptical. However, when it comes to dessert, I am willing to try just about anything. I'm saving this to make this Sunday!
