Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baklava I made this for Christmas. I usually make Paklava the Armenian way that is always a crowd pleaser. Making Baklava using Trivia was an even bigger hit, especially since my boyfriends family consists of several people that are diabetics! I have been asked to make this again SOON! Thank you Trivia for helping me make dessert all family members could eat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This looks interesting I know baklava is a super sugar induced dessert and using truvia sweetener would help cut down some of that sugar
