    According to the owner of the local Turkish deli, this is how his wife makes her dolmas. I know that when I made them, I got a ton of complements.

      We liked this recipe but it didn't taste at all like the Dolma we're accustomed to eating at the Greek restaurant. Also, I think next time I'll ease-up on the cinnamon; it was a bit overpowering.

      These were scrumptious! Better than I have had in many Middle Eastern restaurants. They take forever, very time consuming....but they are worth it. Make sure to toss them with a little olive oil/lemon juice when you are done when you store them. I didn't, and they dried out a bit.
