It is a popular Middle Eastern sugary dessert called Baklava! The dessert is served by several Greek and Lebanese restaurants and has also been featured in several previously recognized Ottoman countries. The precise origin of this dessert remains a mystery but food historians believe that the modern-day baklava traces itself to being invented back in Turkey during the Ottoman Empire, and was then modified in Greece.
The process of preparation for baklava may not seem very hard, though certainly time-consuming, but when it fills your mouth with a sugary sense of delight - it is all worth it. Baklava can be described as a dessert made up of layers of crispy phyllo dough. Each layer of the dough is separated by a sugary nut mixture, and the entire thing is then soaked in a fragrant sweet syrup that comprises honey, lemon, and cinnamon.
The phyllo dough is prepared and rolled out, which is then cut into sheets. Each layer is buttered and topped with nuts, then stacked with another sheet of dough. This is repeated a few more times and the top few layers of dough are not filled with nuts since this will help hold the shape. Then the baklava is cut into diamond or square shapes and baked until they are golden and crisp. To finish, the sugary syrup which is made from boiling water and sugar together with some vanilla and honey is poured over the baklava. This is then cooled and ready to be served.
