Baklava, Maybe

findingwhatssweet

Evening-glazed
thin and translucent
turns sunlight to sugar
stirs my spoon

Smooooth
phyllo dough from scratch
layers repetitive
melt in your mouth

Decadent, rich
lots of honey and nuts
and with a little Vin Santo
you will sleep like a cat.

Wrote this with my writing group recently. The prompt was ‘holiday dessert.’ I’ve discovered I like writing about food for some reason! Had a lot of fun with this one too: Belly Dancing at the Breakfast Buffet and this: Pecorino with Honey  

Thanks for indulging me! Wishing you a sweet New Year xoxo

    1. Thanks, Dale! How did she make it?
      And homemade dough only if I have help in the kitchen with my mess! I use Athens rolls too because I like it for other things. (Plus it fits in my pan)
