Baklava

Most of what we ate in Cypres was Greek but there was a little bit of a Turkish influence in the area we were in. I tried not to eat a lot of deserts when we were on holiday but I loved the Baklava. Yum!!

Baklava (Ottoman Turkish: باقلوا) is a rich, sweet pastry made of layers of phyllo dough filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with syrup or honey. It is characteristic of the cuisines of the former Ottoman Empire and much of central and southwest Asia.
