Ingredients for Baklava Recipe (based on Natashas Kitchen):

You will need 1 (16 oz) package of phyllo (filo) dough*; thawed according to package instructions *Fillo dough should be paper thin – even thinner than paper. Each package has 2 rolls with a total of 40 sheets. Do not use thick sheets of fillo dough for this recipe.

Also, don’t skimp on the butter or any part of the syrup (lemon juice, water and honey) since the recipe needs it to moisten and soften the sheets. Otherwise, the baklava layers can end up dry and won’t stay together easily.

Chocolate is optional, but we say go for it!
