    Recipes like this are why I don't bake much. You know, you just really know that this is going to be fantastic; but it's so much bloody work. I love Baklava and forget buying them here. Thanks for the post but darn your hide anyway. RJ

    Baklava is so delicious, especially with a strong cup of coffee or a capuccino. Great recipe.
