You can’t experience Turkish Food without including one of the most popular pie in Turkey and its neighbor countries.! They are always included on the meze (appetizer) menu.
Who would say no to these mouth watering cheese pockets? I know my family wouldn’t:) Especially my daughter.. I wish she was with me not in USA right now that I can bake these for her all the time:( (Yeah!! I miss her a lot, she is studying in USA, wants to become a dentist..)
Sorry,I got distracted for a minute:)))
