Sweet and spice laden Baklava

photo from Australian Gourmet Traveller

Baklavaclassic dessert of fillo, nuts & honey with hints of cinnamon and spices is soooooooo yummy…but it’s hands down the yummiest when it’s homemade. It dosent matter who's home it is that it comes out of.  It can be anyone’s home. A homemade baklava tends to have a lot more flavor…a lot more freshness…a little more somethin’ somethin’ than the vacuum sealed store brought alternative. Its true! Not that I buy a lot of baklava (what would my greek grandmothers say if they thought i bought baklava and not make it from their secret recipe.) But still.

Baklava makes a great Christmas treat, and since christmas is right around the corner it is the perfect opportunity to give, a whole pan to someone you love or split it up into portions and gift them in nicely crafted little boxes or bagies. Your recipients will love you even more than they already do. Is that possible well there is only one way to find out!
