Armenian recipe preparations tend to be time-consuming. Never wanting to spend any more time in the kitchen than necessary, shortcuts had to be created for some of our family favorites. Without a doubt, the most popular Armenian dessert is paklava (baklava to non-Armenians). Flaky, buttery layers of phyllo dough, with a center layer of chopped nuts and cinnamon, then drizzled with a simple syrup. Love it, but this takes too long, so here’s what I do to save time… Instead of using phyllo dough sheets for this baklava, I purchase bite-sized, premade phyllo cups (15-count per box) in the freezer section of my local grocery store. What a time-saver! This works in other recipes, too. Click here to see What Is... Baklava?
