So, I was super happy when I recently came across a recipe for Greek Walnut Pie. It's a pie that tastes just like baklava, but takes a fraction of the time to make! I was sold and needed to make it immediately.
The results are just amazing. If you are a fan of baklava, then you will love this pie!
Here's the recipe:
Baklava Pie (a.k.a. Greek Walnut Pie)
(adapted from a recipe by Maria Irvine, Pillsbury.com)
Pie crusts for a two-crust pie (homemade or store-bought)
2 1/2 cups walnuts, finely chopped
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 T granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup margarine or unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
3/4 cup honey
1 T lemon juice
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Lightly spray a 9 inch pie plate with baking spray (glass works best).
Line the pie plate with one pie crust. Trim edges to fit plate.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the chopped walnuts, brown sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon; mix well.
