One of our fellow Zaar members made this for Bunko this week - AWESOME! I agree with Jennifer - better than the real thing. I took one home because I did not get to eat one during the evening. After I ate it, I wished I had another. She did not put the honey over the top as instructed, but very yummy! I definitely will make these. I made these myself this time for Bunko. What a hit! Even people who don't like Baklava loved these. Did not use the honey as a garnish though. They are adequately sweet without it.
I served this at my Greek Night Party. They were wonderful and so easy too! I even messed up by forgetting to put the brown sugar in the glaze and it still came out a winner. It was so sweet that I decided to not use the honey garnish and no one missed it. I will definitely be making these again. Thanks Jennygal, I hoped you have tried them by now!
These are just delicious! Assuming you like Baklava, but they're more of a cookie than a bar. I will make them again, and again and again!
