I made this version of baklava for a Biblical Marketplace at church and it was a huge hit! There were only a few slivers left over and my daughter (age 4) decided that she wanted baklava on top of her birthday cake! :)

Wonderful! I rolled my crescent dough between waxed paper for the top layer, made it easier to cover the nut mixture. Also used less nuts and lime juice since no lemon on hand. Turned out sinful! Thank you! Wendy

Wow! What a super-easy way for an otherwise tedious recipe! I couldn't wait to let it cool! I just HAD to taste-test it fresh from the oven! YUMMMMMY! Will take some to work tomorrow and let my boss taste it. (Her family does it the "hard" way)

So easy but very tasty. I cut the recipe in half and used an 8x8 pan. I realized AFTER the pan was in the oven that I had used the wrong measuring cup for the nuts. Even with less nuts the recipe was a success. Thanks!

This was the easiest baklava I have ever made! I used low fat crescent rolls (from Pillsbury, in the fridge section, canned), and followed the recipe for the most part. However, I used a combination of almonds and pecans, instead of walnuts. The only thing I would change is that I would make one and a half batches of the syrup, or even double the syrup, as it came out a bit dry (we like it wet and gooey). For me, it was a perfect recipe, and a wonderful timesaver. A good friend in Colorado made it, but they like chocolate baklava, so she added chocolate chips to hers! But, in NC, I liked it how it was!

This is such an easy-peasy recipe, my whole family enjoyed this one. Made from things I typically have in the house! Thanks for posting!

I was intrigued by this recipe, possibly because it took me a while to work out what crescent rolls are (croissants):-) Anyway I managed to find Sara Lee croissant dough at my supermarket and away I went! The whole thing went together brilliantly (the most difficult part was getting the dough out of the cardboard tube!) and the glaze is amazing too. Because there's just the two of us we had this over several days; it got better each day. I also think this would work well with other fillings; maybe a sliced apple and mincemeat filling. A keeper, thanks for posting Kaarin.
