Pumpkin Pecan Baklava

Description:
This fit-for-fall recipe puts a twist on the traditional Greek dessert treat by incorporating pumpkin and chopped pecans.
Ingredients:

  • 1 package Athens Fillo® Dough (9” x 14”), thawed
  • 2 cups pecans, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ can (15 ounce) pumpkin
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • ¾ cups brown sugar
  • ½ cup water

Directions:

  1. Thaw one roll of fillo, following thawing instructions on package. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2.  
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the pecans, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.
  4.  
  5. Unroll and cover the sheets with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying out. Butter a 9”x13” pan. Place one sheet of fillo in the bottom of the pan and lightly brush the surface with melted butter. Layer and repeat with 9 more sheets. Evenly spread 1/3 of the pumpkin on top of the fillo. Evenly spread 1/3 of the pecan mixture on top of the pumpkin. Repeat this process twice more. Layer with remaining fillo, about 10 sheets. Butter the top layer. With a very sharp knife, cut layers into thirds, lengthwise. Then make a cut from one corner to the next and cut parallel diagonal lines 1” apart to make diamond-shaped pieces. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the fillo is golden brown.
  6.  
  7. While baklava is baking, combine brown sugar and water in small sauce pan over medium low heat. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. When the baklava is ready, remove from oven and pour hot syrup over the top. Allow to set for 4 hours to overnight. Serve.

  9. TIP:
  10. Use a 7”x11” pan for a thicker baklava.
