These Baklava Bar Cookies are one of the most creative uses of packaged cookie mix that I’ve ever seen. I really need to update the photo and plan to in the near future.
To make Baklava Bar Cookies, You take a pack of Betty Crocker brand sugar cookie mix, stir in egg, butter and lemon to form a dough, then press the dough into a pan to make a crust. After baking for 15 minutes, you then top with a mixture of nuts, sugar, butter, cinnamon and (the brilliant part) broken phyllo dough cups. Next you bake the filling, then drizzle on a lemon honey glaze.
Here’s a link to the recipe which was created by my friend Debbie Vanni. Debbie lives in Libertyville, IL where she has turned her cellar into a huge cookbook library. You can find her at The Culinary Cellar.
