One of our fellow Zaar members made this for Bunko this week - AWESOME! I agree with Jennifer - better than the real thing. I took one home because I did not get to eat one during the evening. After I ate it, I wished I had another. She did not put the honey over the top as instructed, but very yummy! I definitely will make these. I made these myself this time for Bunko. What a hit! Even people who don't like Baklava loved these. Did not use the honey as a garnish though. They are adequately sweet without it.
