If you’ve ever baked BAKLAVA at home, you know that creating this scrumptious sweet pastry is tedious, time consuming, and involved. You do it because you love the fresh, homemade flavor and you know exactly what’s in it.
If you occasionally buy BAKLAVA in a store or online, you know the quality can be hit or miss. People tell us that most BAKLAVA is dry and lacks a syrupy, gooey texture, it’s not buttery enough, and doesn’t have a fresh, flavorful taste. pureBAKLAVA is changing all that -- it’s scrumptiously delicious, homemade taste without the hassle.
Our family has been tinkering with BAKLAVA for the past 20 years in-between careers and raising our family.
The origin of our recipe is from our Yiayia (Greek grandmother) who brought it with her when she immigrated to the United States through Ellis Island in the 1920’s. Yiayia kept her recipes in her head, and without precise measurements. They were her secrets. Our mother Nikki patiently captured Yiayia’s recipe, adding exact measurements, then she passed it on to us. This recipe is authentically from “the old country,” as Yiayia would refer to her hometown in Greece.
