This is a very long class! Please have a water bottle or drink nearby to sip throughout the class. 

1 box of Phyllo sheets (Approx 18  sheets) found in the frozen section of the grocery store. These phyllo sheets are as THIN as TISSUE PAPER and very fragile to the touch!  This is what makes Baklava so amazing: thin crispy layers of phyllo and butter....ahhhhh, I can hear the crunchy goodness!   Please do not get this phyllo confused with Phyllo pastry dough which is used for pie crusts type recipes. 

Almonds or Walnuts (I buy whole nuts  from Costco  and  place  them in a food  chopper) Please do  not use Sliced almonds
Lots of butter!! 
Butter brush 
Rectangular baking pan/cookie sheet ( I have used many different sizes!  from 9x12, 12-16 )  if you have questions please message me!

Measuring cup
Large Bowl for almond filling
