Baklava Heaven

Though I always liked baklava, a pastry made with layers of filo dough and filled with chopped nuts and honey, I never considered it one of my go-to desserts. My two reasons being it is hard to make and not easy to find in NYC.

However, I ate so much baklava in the past week. If I were a camel who had to survive on solely baklava, I think I would be filled for at least a year. (I use this camel metaphor because I rode on a camel for the first time on Tuesday!)

As you can see in my pictures below, there were so many pastries to choose from besides baklava.

The right row is all baklava! (I got pistachio and walnut baklava).

My two pieces of baklava (left front: walnut, right front: pistachio) and an apple honey pastry.

More delightful pastries:

I am in dessert heaven.
