Apple Baklava Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, cut into 8 cubes
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • 1 package mini fillo shells (15 shells)
  • 1 apple, peeled and finely diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/8 tsp. cardamom, optional
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

Directions:

  1. Heat your oven to 350ºF.
  2. Arrange the fillo shells on a baking sheet.
  3. Add the walnuts, butter, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt to a food processor or blender; process until the ingredients come together into a chunky dough. Combine the apples and flour in a medium mixing bowl. Add the walnut mixture; mix well.
  4. Pack about 1 heaping tsp. of the apple-walnut mixture into each fillo shell. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. While the baklava bakes, combine the water and honey in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 8-10 minutes or until reduced to a thin syrup. Stir in the cardamom and lemon juice.
  6. Carefully spoon the syrup over the baked baklava, letting it seep into the walnut filling.
  7. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
