Daring Bakers' April Challenge: Armenian Nazook

The Daring Bakers’ April 2012 challenge, hosted by Jason at Daily Candor, were two Armenian standards: nazook and nutmeg cake. Nazook is a layered yeasted dough pastry with a sweet filling, and nutmeg cake is a fragrant, nutty coffee-style cake.

We had the option to choose which pastry we wanted to make and after reading through the recipes I settled on making Nazook.

Flour, sugar, butter, almond extract...How could it turn out bad??  

It did not fail me.  Nazook is tender and sweet and perfect with a cup of hot coffee.  You can check out the recipe and video instructions Jason provided for us here.

The end result looks like something that would be a little tedious, but its actually quite simple and is worth the time. 

Try it out if you are up for a new little challenge!
