Greek Treats

Traditional Greek pastries usually involve layer upon layer of delicate phyllo dough, which is hard to make and even harder to work with. This baklava recipe uses pre made and preached phyllo pastry shells, which can be found in the freezer section of most supermarkets. If you don't care for walnuts, pistachios are a lovely alternative.
