Baklava- Another New Tradition

Good Morning Friends,
I had the best Saturday ever!!! Marybeth Whalen, two of her daughters and her friend Erica came to my house to bake Baklava. Last year I got together with Marybeth and her mom to bake the tasty Greek treat and then they showed me how to make the chocolate covered cherries I showed you last week.
We've decided to make it a new Christmas tradition to bake together each year.
Marybeth is pouring a little OJ and sparkling grape juice for Rebecca and Ashley

Rebecca is cutting the assembled pastry before we bake it. She is a natural!

Ashley and Erica are checking our work

Ashley is studding one pan of the Baklava with whole cloves. They are really more for decoration than anything else. CAUTION: Remove the clove before eating the pastry or you will have "clove breath" for days!!
Rebecca is so proud of her hard work

We enjoyed a little conversation while the pastry is baking

A little game of Wii Bowling is always to good help pass the time while the pastry is baking.
