Any Baklava Makers Out there?

TSAW | Feb 14, 201408:44 AM

I'm interested in making baklava. Does anyone out there make it regularly? I understand it's fairly easy but after looking online it seems there are many variations. I've worked with phyllo quite a bit before so I'm familiar with handling it.

I'm wondering if I could use pecans instead of walnuts. I hate walnuts, plus I have a giant bag of pecans from Costco I'd like to use up. Buying pistachios in my area is pretty pricey so I won't be doing that. Can I cut the pecans with another nut?

I've found recipes with basic simple syrup and also some using honey. I think I would prefer honey but I'm not sure if that wouldn't be too sticky.

Any hints or tips would be appreciated.
