Baklava

Sweet, Sweet Heaven

Is it sad that what I was looking forward to most about a month spent in Greece and Turkey was the baklava?!
The first photograph taken in Turkey was of me eating baklava
So it only makes sense to continue my obsession in the USofA!
A little time consuming to make, but simple once you have all the ingredients prepared and ready to assemble
I use walnuts like the Greeks
Pistachios are used in Turkey
I served them plopped down in the middle of a cupcake paper

Recipe is courtesy of Florence Stamos.
Ingredients:

A baklava factory in Turkey
I asked for one piece and they would not let me pay for it.  They insisted that one piece is always a present and they don’t charge for it :o)
 “do not disturb”

Just a typical walk through Istanbul
