Baklava has been a staple at both the Flower and Garden and the Food and Wine Festivals for many years at Epcot. This tasty sweet dessert is always a crowd pleaser!

Epcot Festivals

Epcot is known for 2 yearly festivals, Flower and Garden and also the Food and Wine Festival. This year I went for the first time to the Flower and Garden Festival out of the 2 Epcot Festivals.

 

Baklava

I am no stranger to Epcot’s baklava. I had some of the baklava about 15 years ago at the Food and Wine Festival. When I spotted at the Flower and Garden festival I had to try the baklava!

 

Baklava is one of my favorite desserts. I love that honey-covered dessert. Those spiced nuts tucked into layers of buttery phyllo, it is heaven to me.

 

I have also made baklava at home. It can be a pain in the butt to create. Anytime you work with the tissue paper thin phyllo, it can be a pain. So making baklava does take a very long time to assemble.

 

You have to take your time. You have to butter and take the phyllo and nuts and keep building up layers as you make walnut baklava. I know what to expect when comes to a baklava recipe.
