  • Summary

    This pretty baklava with a diamond-cut top can easily take the place of pecan pie on a Thanksgiving dessert buffet. The bourbon-honey syrup and orange zest in the filling add rich, savory flavor, and keep things less sweet than the traditional Middle Eastern treat.

    Ingredients

    • 2/3 cup honey
    • 2 (3") cinnamon sticks
    • 1 1 /2 cups sugar, divided
    • 3 tablespoons bourbon
    • 3 cups raw pecans (about 12 ounces)
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest, plus 1 teaspoon orange curls
    • 20 (17x12") sheets fresh phyllo pastry or frozen, thawed
    • 1 cup (2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
    • A 9-inch springform pan
