Delicious Bulgarian Baklava Recipe (Walnut pie) – flaky and super crispy but moist at the same time.  This Walnut Pie is made of crispy filo pastry and lots of nuts.  Next, every two layers are filled with buttery almond mixture, follow by 2 caramelized hazelnut layers in between.  YOU are going to love the hint of the lemon juice being soaked in every bite. It is so good!

I like to serve this crispy deliciousness with a melted chocolate drizzle over the Baklava and ground almonds on top.  Make this nutty dessert for the upcoming Thanksgiving or Christmas Potluck, I am sure YOUR friends and family will love it!
