When I don’t know what to present someone for Christmas I make candies, cookies or a combination of both. But I need to give it to someone and see them gloom at the mass of treats before them. Now I would like to share with you a few wonderfully delicious Christmas treats that I usually make during the holidays. Many of them I only make during the holidays, and the family truly awaits this time of year for a chance to enjoy their favorite sweets baked especially for them to eat.
When I tried Baklava for the first time I thought it was the nicest dessert ever and that it would be extremely difficult to make. But it’s really simple! You just need to layer the thin sheets of phyllo dough and fill it without tearing the doughy sheets. You can use a lot of different types of nuts as the filling, but I like to use pecans. It doesn’t matter which type you choose, you’ll need a pound of them for a principal baklava recipe.
