Zelnikis a Macedonian pastry consisting of a variety of fillings encased in a flakey crust. That crust is the star of the show. The laminated dough is handmade using a proprietary blend of butter and oils. Then we delicately assemble the pies and bake them for over an hour. The is process is time consuming – but results in a crust that is of superior texture and flavor. We carry two varieties for the meal boxes.
