One of my favourite sweet treats has always been Baklava. I haven't found too many places in my area that have homemade Baklava, so every once in a while I make a trip to my local Greek Market to pick up a couple of pieces of this delicious pastry. Recently, I got it in my head that I would try to make some Baklava myself, so I started looking up recipes online and realized it really isn't as difficult as I thought it may have been. I wanted to use a recipe that (hopefully) was authentic, and I settled on this one. Below are the photos I took of this adventure.
Chopped almonds (instead of walnuts), sugar, cloves and cinnamon.

It has been baked and is cooling off before I add the honey syrup.
It's cooling off after I added the honey syrup. I put it in the fridge for 1/2 hour and then it was ready to eat!
