I just love all of the Greek desserts and pastries like Kataifi, Baklava and Amygdalopita. Besides recipes for some of these great sweets, you'll also learn about my love for everything Greek.
Here is my mother-in-law's recipe for Amydgalopita.
Baklava (bahk-lah-VAH) is a great Greek pastry made with honey, nuts and filo dough.

Kataifi (kah-tah-EE-fee) Rolls a.k.a. Hairy Fingers
My husband grew-up eating these cookies. He has always called them "Hairy Fingers," because that's what they look like. To me, they look like medium-sized shredded wheat covered in honey. These cookies are time consuming to make, but worth it.
Koulourakia - (koo-loure-RAH-kee-ah)
Koulourakia is a plain, lightly sweetened Greek cookie twist.
Kourambiethes is a wonderful Greek cookie covered in powdered sugar.
I think of these as the Greek version of doughnuts only they are round balls which are drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon.
