This recipe is old, very old. It’s been around way before I showed up, and my mother, and my grandmother. I grew up with it, and until this very day this is the one of the most popular and classical deserts around here. I have seen similar recipes in Spanish, Italian, Turkish, Russian and all kind of sites, and initially I was a little shaken that other nations do it too, and that the origin of the recipe is probably from another country. But when you live in a small country, located on a crossroad between Europe and Asia, a lot of diverse cultures influence the cooking, living, and habits, expanding our horizons and becoming a part of our nature.
