Method

  1. To make phyllo cups, lightly butter 1 sheet of phyllo pastry. Top it with another sheet and brush it lightly with melted butter. Repeat the last step two more times. 
  2. Grease 1, 24-cup, or 2, 12-cup non-stick mini muffin pans with vegetable oil spray. With a 3” round cookie cutter, cut the layered pastry into 24 rounds. Nestle a round of pastry into each slot of the pan(s), gently forming it into a cup shape. Cover cups with plastic wrap until ready to fill. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place honey and 2 Tbsp. butter in a 1-cup glass measuring cup and microwave 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until butter is melted. Mix in the lemon zest and cinnamon. 
  4. Divide the nuts among the phyllo cups. Divide and pour 3/4 tsp. of honey mixture over the nuts in each cup. The nuts won’t be completely covered. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until cups are golden. (Don’t worry if filling bubbles over a bit.) Remove from the oven and let cups cool in the pan 10 minutes. 
  5. Line a baking sheet parchment paper. After cups have cooled 10 minutes, use a thin spatula to carefully remove them from the pan and set on the baking sheet. (Don’t let cups completely cool in muffin pan, or you won’t get them out.)
  6. Let cups cool to room temperature on the baking sheet. Tent with plastic wrap and keep at room temperature until needed. When ready to serve, drizzle each baklava cup with a bit of honey and enjoy.

Recipe options: If desired, you could use just walnut halves in this recipe, replacing the pistachios called for with another 1/3 cup of them.

Serving Suggestions
