Pistachio Baklava with Cardamom and Rose Water

Crisp, flaky, buttery Middle Eastern baklava filled with fragrant nuts and spices and a sweetened rose water syrup.  To all the moms and moms-to-be, I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Very Berry Pie

A lightly sweetened homemade all-butter pie crust filled with 4 different berries giving an incredible sweet and tart combination of flavors. There’s a sudden change in the April mornings of New York.  Clearly not as cold as the Winter months but a noticeable difference in the early brisk breeze from the Fall.  The mere thought of days getting longer, the comfort of lighter clothing worn, and the change in beauty of NYC streets while …

Maple Apple Walnut Tart | URBAN BAKES

Rustic Maple Apple Walnut Tart

Can we ignore this luscious rustic maple-apple-walnut tart over here for a moment because I feel the need to say that I still can’t get over that this is the first time I made pie crust from scratch!  Can you believe it?
