The Perfect Bourekas + Cookbook Giveaway (3 Winners)

Perfect Bourekas

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winners: Lori A., Teri G., and Betty P.

I love dairy. And  I love carbs.

And oh my goodness, I love dairy and carbs together.

Which is why when I lived in Israel, my absolute favorite indulgence was a cheese bourekas from Angel Bakery.

It’s been five years since I lived in Israel – and I have yet to experience that same deliciousness. But this recipe, from the new cookbook, Jewish Traditional Cooking by Ruth Joseph, looks like it might just do the trick.

And wouldn’t it be perfect for Shavuot?!
