Baklava is a terribly labor intensive item to bake. Someday I might be ready to devote an entire day to making it, but for now this shortcut recipe was the prefect substitute.
This recipe uses store bought filo cups to cut prep time immensely, Sunny Anderson knows what she's doing.
The only little change I made to this recipe was eliminating the almonds; I just used walnuts and pistachios.
I almost left out the lemon zest, but do NOT leave it out. It brings the flavors to a whole nother level.
These were quite well received and fairly simple to make. I highly recommend trying this recipe out.
