Today is Saturday, December 9th also known as National Pastry Day. Yum!
Over the past few years I have come to find there are a lot of National this and that day. National Hug Day, Bean Day, Tin Can Day and so on. National Pastry Day is one I can definitely get down with lol.
Here’s a Little About National Pastry Day
When did it start?
Actually, this is one of the National days that no one seems to know when it started or who started it.
But, thank you pastry God! Lol.
How do you celebrate?
Well it’s quite simple really. You enjoy at least one pastry of course!
But no one says it has to be just one, I promise no one is watching.
What is a pastry?
Pastry is a dough of flour, water and shortening that may be savoury or sweetened. Sweetened pastries are often described as bakers’ confectionery. The word “pastries” suggests many kinds of baked products made from ingredients such as flour, sugar, milk, butter, shortening, baking powder, and eggs.
Basically… goodness, just plain ‘ole goodness!
My favorite pastry
Baklava! I fell in love with it when I worked next to a bakery. I have never had it before until then.
Montgomery Bakehouse is the bakery I used to work near. I do not believe they deliver or ship their goods. But if you work, live or pass by it’s definitely worth it to pop in!
What is Baklava?
Baklava is a rich, sweet dessert pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup or honey.
