Can You Really Make Baklava in a Dutch Oven?

Baklava 1

Why yes I can. If you don’t know what Baklava is, you are sweetness deprived. It is a Middle Eastern pastry made with 60 sheets of tissue-like Phylo dough with melted butter between each of them. Traditionally, it is filled with a layer of cinnamon, sugar, chopped walnuts, and rose water. Then it’s cut into diamond shapes and baked in a slow oven. As soon as it comes out of the oven, a thick syrup made of sugar, honey, and rose water is poured over it. Probably a zillion calories, but oh so good.
