Turkish Baklava - Hands on Kitchen Had some friends over for dinner last weekend and they brought us some Turkish baklava. Turns out the Greeks like to put their name on it but the Turks say its theirs. Sounds like French Fries to me... Our friends were kind enough to take pictures and do a little write up on it so onto the recipe! It's a very simple recipe and it tasted great! Wasn't as powerful as some of the Greek baklavas I've had before. Not too overly sweet. If you get bored, give it a try!
