Erica of Erica’s Edibles was our host for the Daring Baker’s June challenge. Erica challenged us to be truly DARING by making homemade phyllo dough and then to use that homemade dough to make Baklava.
Repeat after me: “I will never complain about rolling out pie dough again”.
This month, I re-join the Daring Bakers after a long absence to focus on work and family life. Time is once again allowing me to return to blogging (at a slow pace) and with that, returning to the group that helps me to stretch my boundaries in the kitchen. This month’s challenge was one I’ve been waiting for: Baklava. The flaky, nutty, uber-sweet dessert that most people associate with Greece, but whose origin is claimed by many different nations.
