I have to admit, as a child I was not a fan of Baklava. Although my mother makes the best, I preferred other Greek sweets over this one. As I grew older, however, I began to acquire a taste for this buttery, syrupy, sophisticated treat in all forms and variations- walnuts, almonds, even cashews. It especially tastes great frozen, which incidentally inspired my Cinnamon Honey Baklava Ice Cream (coming soon!)- but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
