Rally, the stuffing is very interesting and original. Bravo, great offer!

Very good recipe! With my favorite dried fruits. Will try immediately!

Incredible baklava, I intend to prepare it for the upcoming Christmas and New Year holidays. I'll write what was *my* result. Congratulations to the author, it is always great recipes published. A long time after the site, Aliana, recipes you I really like, most of them in my *Favorites*.

Darina, thank you very much! :-) About the recipe I want to add that the filling can use other dried fruits, as I ignore most of it, are always sweet and sour fruit. It is the most harmonious taste. I have rules and dates 200g + 100g candied lemons, as only then soak dates, and raisins with 200g + 100g prunes soaked in lemon juice. The choice is not limited. But figs are appointed me favorites:-)
