This Christmas Baklava is a delightful twist on the traditional Middle Eastern dessert, incorporating festive flavors and ingredients that make it perfect for the holiday season. Here's a recipe to help you make this delicious treat:


  • 1/2 pound chopped pecans
  • 1/2 pound chopped walnuts
  • 2–3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 pound package of phyllo dough
  • 1–1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2–1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon peel
  • Mix the walnuts in a large bowl and mix with the ground cinnamon. Sit aside.


  1. Butter a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. Place 2 sheets of paper in the bottom of the prepared dish. Spread generously with melted butter.
  3. Sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons of the walnut mixture on the face. Repeat layers until all nuts, butter, and chips are used.
  4. Finish with about 6 layers of edges on top. If you still have a little butter left over, spread it over the top layer.
  5. With a very sharp knife, cut all the layers of baklava. Cut 3-4 slices lengthwise.
  6. Then make diagonal cuts to make diamond shapes.
  7. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
  8. While the baklava is baking, heat the honey in a saucepan until it comes to a boil. Add the vanilla flavor and lemon peel.
  9. When the baklava is cooked in bread, immediately pour the honey mixture over it.
  10. Let it cool completely in the skillet.
