Frequently Asked Questions


What Makes Jackie's Baklava Special?

Can You Share the Story Behind Your Baklava Recipe?
Inspired by a student's encouragement, I transformed my homemade baklava, perfected over a year, and once taught in baking classes, into a market-ready delight during the pandemic.
How Would You Describe Your Baklava?
My baklava is a symphony of flavors - a delicate dance of spices, flaky phyllo, and organic nuts, all bound together with organic clarified butter. It's a far cry from the supermarket variety and crafted with love in my home kitchen.
What is Your Baklava Preparation Method?
Each baklava is meticulously crafted with 33 layers of phyllo dough, each layer lovingly sprayed with butter, baked to perfection to ensure a crispy, flavorful experience.
How Should I Store Your Baklava for Freshness?
Enjoy my baklava fresh for up to 10 days on the countertop. For longer storage, freeze it in a well-sealed bag. Even after three months, the texture and flavor remain as delightful as if it were fresh from the oven.

Yes, our vegan baklava is made with the finest vegan butter, catering to all preferences without compromising on taste.

The single non-vegan ingredient in my baklava is butter. For my vegan baklava option, I use vegan butter instead of regular butter.

Is Your Baklava a Healthy Dessert Option?
Yes, my baklava offers a healthier alternative to traditional recipes. While it remains a treat to be enjoyed in moderation, I've made conscious efforts to enhance its nutritional profile.

It's a delightful indulgence that aligns with a health-conscious lifestyle, without overstating its health attributes.
