This Turkish-style baklava tastes deeply and richly of pistachio nuts and butter, without the spices, honey or aromatics found in other versions. It has a purity of flavor that, while still quite sweet, is never cloying. (Photo: Andrew Scrivani for The New York Times)
Spiced nuts are always a hit in my house. I often use mixed nuts, but if I really want to make it special, I grab pistachios! They’re naturally festive, especially when dressed up with my Chili & Paprika Spice Mix.
