Tangierine Cafe’s Cashew Baklava

Tucked away in Morocco’s Tangierine Café at Epcot, you can find a Pastries and Coffee Bar with an assortment of beverages, including coffee, beer, cocktails and even a Moroccan Mint Tea.

You can also find an assortment of pastries, including three types of Baklava: Walnut, Pistachio, and Cashew. I asked the Cast Member which one he recommended, and he suggested Cashew.

I obliged and ordered the Cashew Baklava.

Unlike the triangular pieces of the treat found at Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival in the fall, here you receive three pieces that are rolled to incorporate the cashews into the filling. The phyllo dough is light, sweet and flaky, sprinkled with a dusting of crushed pistachios.

The cashew flavor is mild, but provides a nice crunch to each bite as the delicate phyllo seemingly melts away. While walnuts and pistachios are more traditional in baklava (and I look forward to going back for them here), I really enjoyed the cashew, and those who may not care for the strong, somewhat bitter flavor of walnut may find this version more pleasant.

I’ll definitely be stopping by the Pastries and Coffee Bar in Tangierine Cafe for the Baklava again, and might even try some of their other items on display. At $2.99, it’s an inexpensive taste of Morocco, and not a bad size for sharing.

Have you stopped by Tangierine Cafe for their Baklava? Do you prefer Walnut, Pistachio of Cashew?
