OK, so I've changed it a little by adding more filling and using butter (with a little toasted sesame oil!) but the original goal of using all honey was almost achieved. I am surprised at how many recipes use mostly sugar. Can anyone tell me if the sugar in the filling is necessary? I want to try this with just honey but don't want to ruin a batch experimenting since it's a lot of effort and materials. Sorry to use this space to ask a question but I'm trying to make improvements on an already excellent recipe.
I can't tell you how GOOD this was. I was thinking it would be missing something because of the butter, but OH my goodness...this was out of this world. We will make this again and again. Honestly, you have no idea how fabulous it is. My only complaint was having to shell the pistachios (can't find unshelled) and they were salted so we just didn't add the extra salt--but it was so good it was worth it. Yes, a bit labor intensive, but really wonderful!
Made this for a recent Greek-themed dinner with friends - HUGE success...I've been doing a weekly dessert for 6 months and was told this is my best yet! Couldn't find wildflower honey so I used regular, but followed everything else exactly. Absolutely DELICIOUS, and is rich enough that it is it's own portion control. MUST try - bon appetit! :D
Great recipe and easy to make. I usually don't have a sweet tooth but I couldn't stop eating it!
Easy to make and very delicious. I used regular honey because I couldn't find wildflower, but that was the only modification I made.
