I found this recipe for the Lazy Cook's Baklava on Noble Pig (great blog, check it out) a couple of months ago and have been waiting for the right opportunity to make them. That opportunity presented itself today in the form of a casual picnic at a local vineyard.
These were so easy that a special occasion is certainly not required. The end result after very little effort is the perfect-pop-in-your-mouth-size baklavas. Crunchy, sweet, sticky rich deliciousness!
The Lazy Cook's Baklava
Inspired by Woman's Day/Noble Pig
1 box (2.1 ounce) frozen mini fillo shells
1/3 cup chopped pistachios
1/3 cup chopped cashews
1/3 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon water
Chop pistachios, cashews and almonds. Combine into one mixture. Fill shells with nuts and bake in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes or until shells are lightly browned. Mix honey with water. Remove the cups from the oven and spoon in honey mixture (really fill them up).
Serve warm or at room temperature.
