Try these delicious and delightfully gooey snacks. Edibles have never tasted this good!

It was Thanksgiving. The world was all rainbows and unicorns. The Baklava Susan baked was one of the best I’ve ever had, but I have to be honest, my feelings for her made me a bit biased. After I lost all strings with once used to be a dearest friend, whilst obviously still retaining warm memories, I decided to test this theory and try the recipe myself. 

Despite the fact that loving someone is one of the best feelings anyone can possibly experience, it’s mostly circumstantial. So the key takeaway from that “friendship” is that love should be selfless. If you truly love someone, you will always wish them happiness, and it won’t matter if you still together or not. But if you called him a jerk or calling her a bitch, it means that you didn’t love that person, you had feelings for them for entirely selfish reasons. Nevertheless, does selfless love even exists?

I remembered her the other day, and for a moment, I wished her happiness. So I’m getting there. I need more time.

  • As phyllo dough dries fast, keep it covered with a damp kitchen towel while you are working. If necessary, cut the dough so the sheets will fit in the baking pan. Place a sheet of phyllo dough into the pan. Use a pastry brush to brush the phyllo sheet with the melted butter mixture. Repeat 7 more times until the stack is 8 sheets thick. Spread a thin layer of the nut mixture over the dough. Cover with two more sheets of phyllo, brushing each one with butter. Continue to repeat adding a layer of the nut mixture then a phyllo sheet, butter and another phyllo sheet, until the nut mixture is used up. Finish up with 8 more sheets of phyllo dough, brushing each with butter as you add them.
