Baklava Baked Apples is a sweet apple cored in the middle and filled with baklava dough, nuts and honey, then baked perfectly.

It is Syrian classic flavored healthy dish which combine the smooth taste of honey with walnut and of course, the pure joy of pistachio. It is heavenly aromatic and tastes very very delicious.

These easy baked baklava apples are the perfect combination of spices, nuts, honey, and of course apples. Be sure to make more of the filling and serve it on the side, probably with an extra scoop of vanilla ice cream.

 Back in the old days, Baklava was a food that only rich people could afford, but today it is sold in many stores nationwide and better yet, make your own baklava:

It is so simple and delicious.

Serve hot baked apples immediately with more stuffing and more shredded phyllo on the side. You might want to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 



▢4 apples I’ve used red delicious.

▢1 cup chopped walnuts.

▢1/2 cup chopped pistachios.

▢3 Tablespoons honey.

▢3-4 sheets of phyllo dough.

▢3 Tablespoon unsalted butter.

Add ons:

▢1 Tablespoon orange blossom water or

▢1 teaspoon ground cardamom.

▢1 teaspoons ground cinnamon.



Preheat the oven to 375F.

In a pan over medium heat melt 1 tablespoon of butter then add both walnuts and pistachios, stir for 3 minutes until lightly roasted.

Remove from heat then add honey and whatever add-ons you want.

Core the apples leaving enough at the base for the filling.

Fill each apple with the nut mixture and pressing firmly.

Add the apples to a wide enough pan to hold them all and pour about a cup of water to the bottom of the pan.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the apples are soft but not mushy.

Meanwhile, shred the phyllo dough then add the remaining butter to a pan over medium heat. Add the shredded phyllo and stir until the pieces turn golden brown.

Sprinkle shredded phyllo on top of the apples and drizzle with some honey.

Serve immediately with the remaining phyllo and filling on the side.
