Sweets help keep the festive spirit going during holiday seasons.
Baklavas are the quintessential Eid Al-Fitr, and Ramadan treats. They’re part of an age-old tradition that marks these holiday times with the spirit of joy, love, and giving.
They’re also relished by people of other cultures the world over and not only for a special occasion (you don’t always need an excuse for a heavenly bite, right?).
But where do you find decent baklava when you need one?

The Short History of Baklava
Baklava is one of the oldest-known desserts.
It grabbed a slice of history (pun intended), though it’s not well-documented. Known as distinctly Turkish food, baklava was a staple in the Ottoman Empire — both among nomadic peoples and in the kitchens of the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul.
Baklava dates back to 1200AD. It's known to have been endorsed by the Sultan that ruled in the 17th century — that much has been recorded by history.
The story has it that the Sultan used to munch baklava in the company of the Janissaries in a ceremonial procession called the Baklava Alayı.
Not much is known of baklava’s pre-Ottoman history, but some ascribe its origins to the Ancient Greek dessert gastris (γάστρις), the Persian lauzinaj, and the Ancient Roman placenta cake.
Other sources point to the Turkish güllaç, a dessert made by dipping layers of filo dough in warmed-up milk and sugar.
Order Your Baklava Online
When ordering your baklava online, you need to know what to look for. The last thing you need is stale, dry, subpar industrial baklava.
Our baklava is a different kind. And here’s why.
Baklava can be average, and it can be other-worldly. We go out of our way so that people would regard our baklavas for the latter kind.
Our baklava dessert is an authentic, honest-to-goodness Mediterranean pastry.
When you think of baklava, you typically think of chopped nuts (presumably walnut) hugged by thin filo pastry abundantly dipped in syrup or honey.
Leyla’s Delicacies’ baklava comes with a lovely Tunisian twist that will take your taste buds for a ride.
We’ve replaced walnut with pistachio in our favorite layered pastry dessert.
The highlight of our baklava is a crunchy mix of the finest nuts — our pistachios are shipped all the way from Turkey. Our thin filo pastry is dipped in just the right amount of honey and melted butter to hit the sweet spot.
Our baklava is 70% nuts and 30% sugar. We make sure to balance our ingredients so that the superior blend of natural flavors fits into each bite you take.
Our customers agree with us on that point.
