Baklava doesn’t really have icing, though, does it? More like a honey glaze type of thing. Either way, yummy!

Too sweet for my taste.

And too sticky. After eating it, one sticks to everything and leaves a trail for the ants to discover. Puff pastry is used for croissants and is similar but can have a sugar glaze, dried fruit, chocolate bits, etc

I once made baklava and was so overly enthusiastic with the honey syrup that it made my guests teeth stick together!

But their dentists must have loved you.

McBean's avatar

Actually, the guests themselves loved me. They polished off the entire pan and spent the rest of the night sucking on their teeth. It was pretty awful.

Thanks for the double laugh.

It’s Greek babe, just so you know. :-)

Frick.. I’m too late answering this one. I’m part Greek and baklava is definitely one of the tastiest desserts ever. Home made is the best kind, by the way.

I SO agree with you Allie! The only homemade kind I’ve had was Egyptian, but it turns out it’s all reaaaaaaaaaaaaallly gooooooooood.
