|Basically, I've ended up making Ms. Elegant Baklava's odd hotdog-shaped cousin. Wuh wuuh.|
Blog-checking lines: 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.

Phyllo pastry made at home? Ho hum I don't think it's possible for me to do it! I mean, I got the pastry rolled out quite thin but I was too scared to roll it out even further in case it tore. Anyhow, because it was thicker than normal, I decided to use it for a baklava derivitive that likes a thicker pastry: walnut cigars. I used a recipe straight out of the awesome book, Warm Bread and Honey Cake by Gaitri Pagrach-Chandra.
I made the baklava at night (so not many photos) so I'm posting a pic of a toilet with a garden on its roof! The doors also said 'see you again' under a painting of a boomerang. Super cute! But I seemed to be the only one who thought so...
Check out the gorgeous creations from my fellow Daring Bakers!
