Bake Off Week 9 - Pâtisserie

I was so happy to see bakalava come up on bake off as it's been on my to-do/wish list for a while (although it still didn't solve the question of how to pronounce it, is it bal-LA-va or ba-kla-VA?) so I found a good looking recipe online and stocked up on enough walnuts to feed an army of squirrels. And no, I did not make my own filo pastry!

Two issues with this one - I didn't check how many sheets of filo the recipe required before I bought it and didn't end up with quite enough, and I didn't chop the nuts small enough. Still, it was really tasty, if rather difficult to eat for constantly falling apart. Best eaten in large spoonfuls.
