The watercolour recipe goes something like this:
Originally a symbol of the Magis' arrival to bring presents to the newborn Jesus (the "Epiphany"), it was meant to ressemble middle-eastern treats such as baklawas. Hence the heavy almond use and puff pastry, akin to Phillo pastry.
We've had about 10 of these since the 6th of January (the official "Epiphany" date). The husband even made the puff pastry at some point. A delicious tradition.
