Equipment

Ingredients

Syrup:

  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Baklava

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped nuts – I used a mixture of pistachios and pine nuts
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pound package frozen phyllo dough thawed in the refrigerator overnight
  • 1/2 cup cannabis infused butter melted
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • about 1/4 cup coarsely chopped pistachios for garnish optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x13 pan.
  • Combine all syrup ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  • Use a food processor to chop the nuts into small, even sized pieces. Stir 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon into the chopped nuts until well combined.
  • Melt the cannabis butter and butter together.
  • As phyllo dough dries fast, keep it covered with a damp kitchen towel while you are working. If necessary, cut the dough so the sheets will fit in the baking pan. Place a sheet of phyllo dough into the pan. Use a pastry brush to brush the phyllo sheet with the melted butter mixture. Repeat 7 more times until the stack is 8 sheets thick. Spread a thin layer of the nut mixture over the dough. Cover with two more sheets of phyllo, brushing each one with butter. Continue to repeat adding a layer of the nut mixture then a phyllo sheet, butter and another phyllo sheet, until the nut mixture is used up. Finish up with 8 more sheets of phyllo dough, brushing each with butter as you add them.
  • Take a sharp knife and cut the baklava into 24 pieces in the pan. Bake for about 30 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
  • Spoon the cooled syrup over the hot baklava and sprinkle with chopped pistachios, if using. Let cool for at least 2 hours before removing to a serving dish.
