Baklawa
Biklawah

An ideal and good end to a delicious meal is a creative dessert.

Although most Lebanese and Syrians prefer to eat fresh fruit after a hardly meal, certain desserts or sweets are expected to follow.

Furthermore, sweets are often served separately for occasions and celebrations; for example, “moughlie” is served when a baby is born at Christmas to symbolize the birth of Jesus.
Lebanese and Syrian desserts and sweets are so tempting that while making them, you can not wait to dive into them with a renewed appetite. The sweets are popular and pleasing to the palate.


24 pastry sheets (filo pastry)
½ pkg of sweet butter or ghee or half half filling: 1 lb. pistachios

Butter

Optional - 1t cloves
1t rose water
Or 1 lb. chopped walnuts
