Sweet and flaky, this easy, rolled Russian Baklava will melt in your mouth! Phyllo dough, nuts, and sugar never tasted so good!


  • 25 sheets phyllo dough (about 1/2 box), thawed completely
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, divided
  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • honey, optional


  1. In a food processor, pulse walnuts until crumbs. Pour into a bowl and add 1 1/2 cups of the powdered sugar and cinnamon. Mix and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, add the melted butter, set aside.
  3. Lay out one sheet of phyllo dough. Brush gently with melted butter using a silicone pastry brush. Cover with another sheet of phyllo dough. Brush with melted butter. Repeat until you have 5 sheets of phyllo dough stacked. On the last buttered sheet of phyllo dough, sprinkle about 1/2 cup of the walnut mixture. Spread gently with fingers.
  4. Using your hands, roll the dough up tight (rolling from the short end to the short end). Place in a 13x9 baking dish that has been sprayed with baking spray.
  5. Repeat for remaining sheets of phyllo dough.
  6. Drizzle the remaining butter over the top. Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 28-30 minutes, until edges are brown and crispy.
  7. Sprinkle immediately with 1/4 cup of the remaining powdered sugar. Cool for about 1 hour. Remove from baking dish and slice each log into 4 pieces and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Add honey if desired upon serving. ENJOY!
