With roots dating back to Ottoman-Era Turkey, yufka is the light flaky pastry dough widely used in Turkey, the Middle East and the Balkans for traditional dishes like baklava – and spinach and cheese pies. At Ömür, our Triangle Yufka Pastry Leaves are made by hand, a true rarity, using a classic Turkish recipe. A bit thicker than traditional phyllo and a bit thinner than a tortilla, our triangle pastry sheets are the perfect shape for böreks. Böreks (bureks or bourekas) are delicious savory or sweet pastries wrapped in crispy layers of yufka dough. While classic savory börek fillings include ingredients like meat, spinach, potato and cheese, think of our Triangle Yufka Pastry Leaves as a blank culinary canvas. Our dough is also thick enough to make a wonderful exterior for pan friend spring rolls. Unlike regular or puff pastry dough, Ömür Triangle Yufka Pastry Leaves are low in fat and low in cholesterol and contain no preservatives.
