Around my eighteenth birthday, I took a trip with my parents to Greece. We spent about two weeks traveling through Athens and the nearby islands. It was wonderful! One of my favorite things was eating massive amounts of pastry and a dessert called baklava.
If you've read my blog much, you know that I don't approve of baking nuts into dessert. This is my one exception. You can't make Baklava without nuts, and you wouldn't want it any other way.
It's a layered dessert, and it's as simple to assemble as lasagna. I used this recipe.
