Baklava, Maybe


thin and translucent
turns sunlight into sugar
stirs my spoon

phyllo dough from scratch
layers repetitive
melt in your mouth

Decadent, rich
lots of honey and nuts
and with a little Vin Santo
you will sleep like a cat.

Thanks for indulging me. ;) Wishing you a sweet New Year. xoxo

    1. Thanks, Dale! How did she make it?
      And homemade dough only if I have help in the kitchen with my mess! I use Athens rolls too because I like it for other things. (Plus it fits in my pan)
