Filled with layers of savory nuts and sweet honey, Baklava is a dessert recipe that perfectly balances the savory, sweet and salty flavors we all love. While traditional Baklava can be labor intensive as you work with layers of filo dough, this twist on the classic recipe uses frozen filo cups as the vessel for all the yummy filling of nuts and honey, making it a cinch to mix up for a party.
1 package frozen filo cups
1/4 cup pistachios
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup almonds
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
2-3 drips fresh lemon juice
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Put the nuts on a baking sheet and toast in the oven at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Remove and let cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees.
Add the nuts, cinnamon, sugar, and salt to a food processor. Pulse until nuts are finely chopped. Transfer to a small bowl and add melted butter, honey, and lemon drops. Stir to combine well.
Fill the filo cups with mixture and bake at 350 for 5 -6 minutes. Serve warm.
