Baklava: good. Custard slice: also good. It only makes sense then, for this baklava custard slice to be utterly delicious. The hybrid creation of Canadian cook and author Tara O’Brady, it came into existence after Tara read about galaktoboureko – a Greek cousin to the custard slice. The descriptions reminded her of a baklava she scoffed down at a friend’s dinner. Soon after, she was figuring out how to combine the best of both, cooking up a puff pastry pressed with pistachios while steeping cream with orange, cardamom, cinnamon and vanilla. The result of her kitchen wizardry is a rich, fragrant slice that might just knock the Aussie bakery treat off its pedestal. If you’re curious, check out the recipe over here.
