Honey Walnut Squares

The author calls it baklava "bakinskaia", but I said it is a delicious pie with walnuts - it brings a lot of baklava, but not very sweet, with a buttery flavor and it is very, very tender and fluffy. It is made quickly and the ingredients are simple and handy, I really recommend you do it, it is one of the most successful posted recently on the site.

During this time we prepare the filling:

The walnuts are crushed, but not really flour - let the pieces be smaller. Mix with 200g of sugar.

Each ball stretches along a thin sheet, about 2 mm thick.

Step 12

I put the cake in the round cake pan (greased with a little oil) - 28cm in diameter - each sheet of dough has about the same diameter.

So I put the first sheet of dough and the walnut filling (ochiometrically divide the filling into 5 parts, and I put 1 part of walnuts on each sheet).

Step 13

The second sheet follows and the filling again. And so on - you will get 6 sheets of dough and 5 layers of nuts.

Press each sheet lightly with your fingers after placing it over the walnut filling.
