How to make it
- WALNUT FILLING:
- In a large mixing bowl stir together all ingredients; set aside.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Brush the bottom of a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with some of the melted butter. Unfold phyllo dough. Working quickly, layer about one-fourth of the phyllo sheets in the pan, brushing or spraying each sheet generously with butter and allowing phyllo to extend up the sides of the pan.
- Sprinkle about 1 1/2 cups of the filling over the phyllo in the pan. Repeat layering phyllo and filling 2 more times. Layer remaining phyllo sheets in the pan, brushing or spraying each sheet with butter. Drizzle any remaining butter, or spray butter, over top layer.
- Trim edges of phyllo to fit pan. Using a sharp knife, cut through all layers to make triangle or diamond shaped pieces or squares.
- Bake at 325 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Slightly cool in pan on a wire rack and pour honey-lemon sauce over warm baklava. Cool completely.
- HONEY-LEMON SAUCE:
- While Baklava is cooking, in a medium saucepan stir together the 1 1/2 cups sugar, honey, lemon peel, lemon juice, stick cinnamon and 1 cup water. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Remove cinnamon.
