Bulgarian Rhapsody: Baklava

“Baklava is a favorite dessert throughout the Balkans.  The Bulgarians inherited it honestly by enduring 500 years of Turkish rule.”

Whoa.  We didn’t take this recipe that seriously since it was a practice run at phyllo dough from scratch for the upcoming recipe Tikvenik.  We had a good time making the dough and thanks to our pasta roller, it was fairly easy to get the dough thin enough to hand stretch nicely.  Once the pumpkins ripen we will come back to this recipe for Tikvenik!

I don't know how people can do this by themselves!
My parents recently went to Sequoia National Park with some friends and brought back huckleberry honey for us. It is a deep bluish-purple and tastes really good.
