  • About

This rich and impressive torte is like baklava with a cookie-dough crust. To intensify the raisiny flavor of the filling, the syrup is made from grape juice instead of honey.


  • ½ pound (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar


In a bowl cream together the butter and ½ cup sugar; beat in the yogurt. Stir in the flour and mix well. Shape the dough into a ball and chill for at least 6 hours, or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350°F</
