How To Make Baklapops-Watch and learn to make your own crunchy, nutty, cinnamony, sugary bits of heaven with Chef Lea McIntosh!
Traditional baklava is a Middle Eastern nut-filled phyllo-dough pastry, made in sheets that are cut and served brownie-style. “I think that people want to enjoy pastries and desserts without over doing it,” says Lea. “BaklaPops are perfect, one-bite indulgences! And what doesn’t look cute on a stick?” Serve them for dessert at your next dinner party, wrap them up individually in cellophane and a bow as a perfect party favor, or bring them with you as your contribution to a potluck. They’re a make-ahead convenience, too as these treats store well at room temperature for several days.
“The recipe is very easy to make,” Lea notes. “But there are many steps involved; so, it may look intimidating…but don’t let that stop you from giving them a try. There is sweet reward at the end…and just one bite will convince you that baking from scratch is worth the effort.”
So, don your apron, pour yourself a glass of wine, and enjoy! Chef Lea’s step-by-step video instruction will guide you through the process…Bon Appetweet!
