      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 really are wonderful. My son married a Greek girl, and I've been trying to make things that have a Greek flair. These are a much easier option that trying to make the real Baklava, and I think it's just as good, or better. I actually didn't have a lemon when I made them the first time and substituted about 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice. They were still great, and I'm not sure if having lemon zest or even the lemon juice would be missed if it were left out. Very easy and good!
