I selectively like winter. I like winter sports. I like walking through freshly fallen snow. I like the fact that you can eat so much food but nobody could ever tell because you are layered with so much winter clothing your shape is not discernible (I'm totally kidding - don't use that as an excuse). I do hate however the slush and cold. I like staying inside on cold days and cooking. I feel like I've been doing that alot recently.
So this is the last Armenian recipe that I'll be posting this month. It's been fun, but I have a whole bunch of other delicious things that I want to share. This my friends, is Armenian style Borek
Borek is one of my favourite appetizers. It is the same as the Greek spanakopita but in miniature form. They are filled with a cheese and herb mixture, but you can really toss in any fillings you would like. I would love to try a mushroom, parsley and caramalized onion mix!
Now making these is kinda finicky. It takes a while so normally when we make a full batch there are 3 of us working away. It makes the time pass quicker and its a great time for socializing... And since its so cold out nobody REALLY wants to go outside anyways. Stay inside! Invite some friends over! Make some borek!
Recipe: Borek1 package of phyllo (~18 sheets makes about 54 borek)
