BaklaPops: A new spin on a favorite phyllo pastry.


It’s unanimous…we have dubbed Chef Lea McIntosh with the title “Sultana of Sweets” for her clever invention of BaklaPops—crunchy, nutty, cinnamony, sugary bites of heaven. Pure culinary treasure!

Traditional baklava is a Middle Eastern nut-filled phyllo-dough pastry, made in sheets that are cut and served brownie-style. “I think that people want to enjoy pastries and desserts without over doing it,” says Lea. “BaklaPops are perfect, one-bite indulgences! And what doesn’t look cute on a stick?”

Find out how to make these sweet treats in Issue No. 4. Chef Lea’s step-by-step video instruction will guide you through the process.
