Baklava





I accidentally bought Baklava during my husband's eye operation. While he was in the operating room, I decided to stop by the store to get me a brekfast. The grocery store sells pastries and sushi in one area. I grabbed a cup of coffee, sushi and cinnamon roll, pay at the cashier, without looking at the items that I picked up, then head back to the hospitals waiting area for a quick breakfast. I excitedly open the plastic bag but to may dismay, no sushi,and got me a baklava instead, that was very disappointing.


What is Baklava? It doesn't sound familiar to most people but for the food lovers and cook, this sweet is not new anymore. Baklava is a sweet pastry made of layers of phyllo dough, brushed with butter in each layer, filled with chopped nuts and syrup or honey. Because of its sweetness and yumminess ,you can eat only as much in a time.


I never tried making this at home yet, I want to, but I can't find any phyllo dough in the store. Based on the recipe and cooking demonstrations that I have watched many times, this Mediterranean delight is so easy to make. I can't wait to make a homemade Baklava.
