Vegan Pear Baklava
|Gold pear||8 , thinly sliced|
|Simple syrup||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Pistachio||3 Cup (48 tbs)|
|Brown sugar||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
Preheat the oven to 350
Take the pears and thinly slice them length wise.
Make the 1-2 cups Simple Syrup by making a mixture of equal parts water and sugar on the stove. Bring up to heat and boil until the sugar is dissolved into the water.
Grind the 3 cups of nuts into an almost paste. Make sure there is still some texture in the nuts.
Take the first layer of pears and lay them down covering the entire bottom of a 9*9 well greased pan. Take enough nuts to cover the entire bottom of the pears. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over the entire surface of the nuts. Then pour enough simple syrup to cover the brown sugar, and if wanted some honey. Make a new layer of pears and repeat the process again until there are no more pears left. Then cover the top in the rest of simple syrup and bake in the over for 30 minutes, or until the top layer of pears is almost crisp. Remove from oven and let rest for 30 minutes, then cut into desired shapes and sizes.
