Baklava

Baklava

Serves: 8-10

Time: 2 hrs

Freezes: Yes

Kid Friendly Tasks: Filling Spreader

Continuing the story of my Greek kick here is the second half of my “must make” desserts. I will warn you right now, if you like exact science, stop reading. This is one of my more loosey goosey desserts. Here’s why, to make baklava you basically layer butter, filo and nuts and pour honey over top of everything. The ratios are up to you. Therefore, what I do, since I do not actually need a full sheet pan of baklava, is to make spanakopitas or my chicken filo squares. Then, whatever amount of filo I have left, I split into five parts, layer with butter, nuts and honey, bake and cover in sugar syrup. I just scale down the amounts of the below to match the amount of filo that I have. You can see the perfect example of this in the picture.

I’ve been on a Greek kick, what can I say. This might be behind the awesome loukoumades I made not long ago and some lovely Greek salad. I’ve still got it on my “to make” list (ever growing) to make Greek meatballs. In the meantime I’ve made this excellent spanikopita.

Plum Cake

Сливовый Пирог

Serves: 4-6

Time: 1 час

Freezes: Да

Да да, я знаю, опять десерт! Но, я обожаю десерт и мне кажется, что десерт – это международная еда, в конце концов, кто не любит пирог? Сегодняшний пирог один из моих любимых к чаю или кофе. Вкус напоминает мне о наших обычных пирогах к кофе, но в этом пироге есть сливы и он не такой сладкий, наверно, потому что на нем нет глазури.
