Almond Butter and Banana Phyllo Triangles (Dessert-Borek)
Tuesday February 25, 2013
I apologize for my almost 2 week blogging hiatus. I have found myself lacking in motivation and have been feeling more inclined to sit on the couch and watching episode after episode of Doctor Who than do my school work and post recipes.
I've still been cooking (one has to eat after all), but just hadn't sat down and edited the pictures and written up my recipes. BUT these were a fun project that I want to tell you about. Because I like them. And you. And the photo didn't need any light-tweaking. The camera/photography gods were smiling on me.
Borek is one of my favourite snacks or appetizers. My grandma makes them for almost every family gathering or party becuase they really are the perfect size and oh so delicious.
The other day I had the brilliant idea to make samosa boreks (recipe not included because I am still fine-tunning it). After I ran out of the samosa filling, my father suggested I use the rest to make a dessert-inspired treat. And voila! Dessert borek with almond butter, apple butter, bananas and cinnamon. And wow were they ever fantastic.
They had a slight baklava taste (which was wonderful)- I can picture doing so many other things- like adding crushed nuts for a crunch, or scattering some crushed nuts on the outside for a decorative look. And using pistachios!
Try some variations of your own! They are addictive.
