Have you ever looked at something and just… fallen completely in love with it?

I mean foodwise?

Well, I’m in love with this handsome pastry!

When I tried baklava for a first time years ago, I just had to start making some of my own.

It makes for an absolutely perfect dessert… with it’s flaky layers of baked pastry glazed in sticky sweet honey, spices and nuts.

Completely irresistible.

See why I’m in love? :)

There are several different cultures who have their own versions of baklava – there are Greek, Turkish, Lebanese and Middle Eastern versions of this amazingly scrumptious dessert.  In today’s post, this recipe is based on Greek baklava.
