Sabanikh bi Ajeen Baklawa
I got the recipie from A taste of Lebanon : cooking today the Lebanese way : over 200 recipes developed and tested / by Mary Salloum
I love Greek and Lebonese foods. My cousin has this cook book and made it one day and I loved it. now if I can only find gluten free Fyllo I will be able to enjoy it once again. This is such a good recipe, now a friend who is not used to lemon was the only one who found it to be too much so you can put less in if you are not used to lemon in your food otherwize it gives a nice flavour
