recipe is great, but there is no need of cinnamon and vanilla! Baklava is delicious with walnuts and butter! I had never realized that I could curl into rolls! Becomes more beautiful and syrup takes better! Bravo for the nice recipe!

Another explanation! Do it, and in Montreal!

spices are really a matter of taste, but in the original recipe for baklava, cinnamon always present.

I forgot to say that in the syrup and put the grated rind of 1 lemon.

I like, just looking for a practical and easy recipe.
