Pear and Fig Baklava

Pear and Fig BaklavaLuscious layers of buttery phyllo dough nestled between gorgeous layers of cinnamon pear, pistachios, and pecans.  Baklava was never meant to be boring.  It was meant to be epic like this Pear and Fig Baklava!

I hope everyone is ready for a fabulous New Year’s Eve!  I’m going to live vicariously through all the cool kids tonight.  First of all, I’ve never been able to stay up past midnight.  Don’t think that’s because I’m a parent, or old, or have two early to bed kids.  I’ve been that way since my 20’s.  It’s so sad!  I blame it on my old soul.  Secondly, I do have two little kids who can’t seem to keep it together past 9.  In our house 9 P.M. is the witching hour of tantrums, whiny little voices, and utter melt downs.  So every New Years Eve it’s hot chocolate, a cozy blanket, and the good old fashioned New Year’s countdown from my quiet little television.
