Baklava Bars Recipe
2 cans of crescent rolls; refrigerated
3 to 4 c of walnut; chopped finely
1 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 c of sugar
For the Glaze:
1/2 c of honey
1/4 c of sugar
2 Tbsps of butter (or margarine)
2 tsps of lemon juice
Set oven at 350 degrees F. Open one of the dinner rolls, then roll it into two rectangles (long). Put it on 13×9″ pan (ungreased). Press rectangles firmly on the base, then carefully mold the crust up to 1/2″ on sides. Bake it for 5-7 minutes. Once done, take it out of the oven.
Using a big bowl – mix the sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts. Spread evenly onto prepared crust. Roll out the second dinner roll can. Roll it into two rectangles (long), then cover the filling. Press edges together.
Score the top of the dough with 5 markings lengthwise, as well as 7 markings diagonally, to outline 28 diamond-shaped sections. Use the pointed end of the knife to do this.
Combine ingredients for glaze in small saucepan. Boil slowly then remove it from the heat. Spread 1/2 of the glaze over diamond shapes, and then place back into the oven. Finally, bake till it browns (for another 25-30 minutes). Take out of the oven and spread remaining sauce over diamonds. Leave to cool.
