Baklava is a delicious, flaky pastry that is well worth the time to make. This recipe, shared by Jasmine Syrian Food in Aurora, Colorado, makes a big batch, but the two-bite pieces freeze like a dream. To make clarified butter, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Skim the milk solids from the top and slowly pour the butter out of the pan, leaving the remaining solids in the bottom.
To make ahead
Refrigerate airtight for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 4 months.
