My second recipe for the Ramadan series is Baklava or Baklawa as it is pronounced in Arabic, it is a traditional delicious rich dessert that is very popular around the Mediterranean,it is consist of layers of phyllo filled with nuts and drenched in a syrup. Baklava mostly enjoyed at Ramadan and the celebrations of Eid and any other celebrations throughout the year. There are numerous variations of baklava filling ,A walnut filling , pistachios filling, almond filling, cashew filling or simply mixed nuts filling. The most coveted baklava of them all is pistachio baklava made with bright green, raw pistachio nuts.Also Baklava comes on various shapes and sizes you’d never dream of. Squares, diamonds, rolls, nests, spirals and many more other shapes.

I made Baklava with three deferent fillings, diamond shape pistachios filling, cashew filled nests topped with pistachios, and the round shape you see in pictures up. Preparing Baklava is not difficult at all but it needs time especially at the first time you try to prepare it but then when you start using to prepare it you will start being very fast.

Have you ever thought of adding the hibiscus powder as a flavor to your chocolate truffles?  Very delicious sour and sweet flavors that mixed together at the same time very unique and just yummy.
