Jalapeno Beer Baklava - sounds bizarre, doesn't it?
Well, much like our Jalapeno Beer Peanut Brittle, this recipe adds beer and jalapenos to a traditional dessert, coming up with something awesome.
Unlike the brittle, which has a "low, slow" burn, there is almost no burn to this at all. Rather than bringing heat to the table, the jalapenos are there for a fruity, complex flavor. The beer also adds an interesting complexity, and doesn't jump out at you as being - in fact - beer. Although a total bastardization on tradition, many people who've tried this have declared this to be their favorite baklava. Try it!
This is one of the many interesting, awesome booze-flavored desserts in my first cookbook, "The Spirited Baker". If you haven't already, you should definitely check it out! 🙂
