Use a sharp serrated knife to cut the baklava into diamond or square shapes.
Don't cut all the way to the bottom – cut to about ¼ – ½” from the bottom.
Bake until crisp and golden brown. In the meantime, make the sauce.
When baklava has finished baking, remove from oven and immediately pour the maple sauce evenly over the top.
Let cool completely before cutting all the way through to the bottom, using the precut lines. Enjoy!
