Persian Nut Pastry/Baghlava
Baghlava is one of the most common Middle Eastern desserts, and it is found on menus from Turkey to Egypt. However, recipes do vary slightly from country to country.This one is a traditional Persian (Iranian) version of the sweet. Other recipes replace the cardamom with cinnamon and use one layer of nuts—usually walnuts or pistachios—in place of the two different layers called for here.
