baklava. Cousin

This is so easy to make and oh so tasty

Beautiful dessert, and very unique. Something special and sweet for your next big dinner.
Bougatsa
3 sticks butter, clarified
3 cups walnuts
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup sugar
7 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
½ tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
3 tsp of  butter
filo sheets
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the butter, 
In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the walnuts until they are a coarse crumbs.



 Put the nuts in a bowl and add the sugar and cinnamon.


In the same food processor, add the eggs, sugar, cottage cheese, salt and vanilla and process until smooth and fluffy.
Brush the pan with butter, and then add one sheet of filo pastry

 Brush the filo dough with butter and then add another layer. Repeat this process, (switching the direction of the filo pastry each time) until you have 3 layers.




 Brush the top piece with butter, and then sprinkle about half of the walnut/sugar mixture onto the filo dough, evenly distributing it.


 Add one more sheet of filo and butter over the nuts layer



 Next, pour the custard in.


 Lay a piece of filo over the custard and gently butter it.


 Lay a second piece of filo and butter it.

 Gently spread the other half of the nut mixture over the filo dough.


Do another three layers of filo over the top in the same way that you did the first three layers.
When you get to the top, tuck all of the overhang in, and generously brush the whole thing with melted butter.

 Carefully slice the top into squares so that the filo won’t puff up too much.





Bake the bugatso in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes or until the filo is golden.



 Let the bugatso cool before cutting in order to let the custard set
