Armenian Gata with Puff Pastry

I was going through my older uploads, came to realize that my tutorial for  Armenian Gata with puff pastry, wasn’t detailed and properly presented. Decided to reupload it, as I also updated the recipe. Hopefully this new upload for Armenian Gata, will bring more recognition to the oldest and most popular traditional sweet.

This version of Armenian Gata, may be the quickest and easiest to make on the quick hand, considering the fact that these days every food market carries a good quality puff pastry dough. So, if the main part of the pastry is already done for you and all you need is to make the filling, called khoriz, stuff the dough with that buttery, sugary filling, cut, bake and enjoy.
