How do I make baklava with pre cut puff pastry (4in by 4in squares). Or should I return it and get puff pastry roll.

You need Filo dough. And a recipe.

As Smaug said, you bought the wrong pastry. You can make something fun with those squares, but you need Phyllo dough to make Baklava.

Precisely- "filo" is something or another- an insurance company maybe? You won't find it in the pastry case, at any rate.

Lol. Actually the Greek meaning is leaf, so let's start calling it "leaf pastry". It'll be a thing.
