If you are looking for a treat that doesn’t contain sugary sweet icing, but is still a sweet bite, give Glad Annie’s Old World Baklava a try. I stopped in Weiland’s Gourmet Market the other day and found a package of it for $2.99 that contained two pieces. Each piece is a 3″x 2″ x 2″ triangle (1.5 ounces) with three layers of phyllo dough and a filling of finely chopped walnuts and syrupy honey between. It will make your fingers sticky, but you’ll be licking up every last drop!
AnnMarie McCallister has been making her baklava out of her home kitchen in Worthington since 2009. She sources products from several Ohio companies – honey from the Ohio State Honeybee Lab, Minerva Amish Gourmet butter from The Clintonville Community Market, and phyllo from Athens Phyllo in Cleveland.
Her baklava is straightforward take on the classical Greek dessert and very dense. The phyllo dough is golden and flaky. I suggest sharing the package of two with a friend.
You can find Glad Annie’s Old World Baklava at: Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace, Betty’s Fine Food & Spirits, Weiland’s Gourmet Market, and The Hills Market. It’s also sometimes available at Brothers Drake Meadery during Gallery Hop. Visit her on Facebook. She also does catering if you’d like baklava for a private event.
