Erica of Erica's Edibles was our host for the Daring Baker's June challenge. Erica challenged us to be truly DARING by making homemade phyllo dough and then to use that homemade dough to make Baklava.
Never thought I'd be making phyllo pastry - wasn't difficult just fiddly and time consuming. Certainly something you could make very easily as the ingredients are so basic. I was pushed for time on this challenge and my phyllo sheets ended up sticking together after I rolled them despite using plenty of flour but I didn't have time to redo it. So although I layered the filling twice it's not a pretty picture.
Can't use nuts so made a filling of pumpkin seeds (pepitas), glace cherries, pomegranate molasses, cinnamon and allspice - yum!
Thanks to Erica for the challenge :)
