A little snazzy dessert, set these next to a plate of cookies and let the magic begin. Every holiday, the aunts and uncles would gather and prepare. Three Sunday’s before a holiday, we would rotate from one relative’s house to the next. First Sunday – Uncle Joe’s to make the sausage. Next Sunday – Auntie Rosie’s to make baklava and ‘ cookies ‘ All the cousins running around, we didn’t mind clean-up duty as that is when the boys would get mischievous, spray us with water or jump out of a closet, scare the daylights out of the girls.
Now, I can see it was more for practical reasons, I bet the cost of ingredients and the time to make these treats no one family could tackle. There is no substitute for baklava, nor for the hours of family time shared. However with miles between us, these Logs are a less expensive, less time consuming, version of baklava, and they remind me of home.
