About Recipe

I suppose the most well known Middle Eastern pastry. I adore baklava and find them terribly addictive, never being able to stop at a sensible number! Unfortunately for me, when it comes to dessert, my kids are truly English, like my husband – they’re not that much into “exotic” ones! That of course means that it only makes an appearance at parties, which is just as well because it’s the perfect party friendly dessert.
