These Baklava Cookies have the great taste of Baklava in cookie form. The center is delicious enough to eat alone! Perfectly sweet and chewy.
Have you ever even seen how they make Baklava? I’m pretty sure it takes eleventy-nine days. All the flaky layers filled with the baklava filling. Have you ever counted the layers? I’m pretty sure there are no less than 43 layers. Guys. These cookies are awesome. I mean come on. Look at the centers! You really could just grab a spoon and eat the filling alone. Or bake some pie crust strips and dip them in it. Christmas is in one week. One weeeeeek! I am so ready. I’ve learned to let go of the commercial/stressful/what do I give so-and-so for Christmas part of it and just love the true meaning of Christmas. It’s about Jesus Christ. And being with family and watching the magic light up my children’s eyes. That’s why I love Christmas.
