For some reason every time I try to create a recipe using walnuts, my mind goes to baklava! I’m sure there are many delicious recipes that are perfect when made with walnuts, but I just can’t get baklava out of my head!!

The very nice people at California Walnuts sent me a bag of delicious walnuts, and I really, really did try to come up with something exciting and different.

and I did, but they are still inspired by baklava. Maybe it is because my brain was in Greece during the entire month of July. Maybe it is because I really do love baklava, I just don’t necessarily like standing in the kitchen for an hour and a half brushing butter on individual sheets of filo dough, LOL  These Baklava Honey-Glazed Walnuts give you the flavors of baklava, without the butter and hard work.

  1. This sounds good, but I’m confused by the honey. Is it 8 teaspoons? Oh wait, I just looked at my keyboard! It’s a typo in the parentheses. 2 tablespoons PLUS 2 teaspoons. Phew!
