Baklava, a sweet dessert pastry, is a classic in Greek, Turkish
and Armenian cuisines. It is made of many paper-thin layers
of phyllo dough that are brushed with melted butter and interspersed
with a mixture of chopped nuts, sugar and spices. While the
baked pastry is still warm, it is drenched with a honey-lemon
syrup. Baklava is traditionally cut into diamonds before serving.
