Baklava Fingers

1 pkg fillo dough
some unsalted butter

1/2 pound chopped walnuts
1/4 pound chopped almonds
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
sprinkle of nutmeg
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tsp orange blossom water

3 cups sugar
1/2 lemon
1 tsp orange blossom water (or vanilla extract)

Dissolve 3 cups sugar in 1.5 cups water. Bring to a medium boil
for 10 minutes. Squeeze 1/2 lemon into it and boil for another
minute or two. At this point it should be a little thick, not as
thick as corn syrup but not like water. Add 1 teaspoon of blossom
water and let cool.

Mix nuts and spices together. I've found you need slightly more
than 1/2 pound of walnuts and 1/4 pound of almonds for one package
of fillo dough. Melt some unsalted butter and let separate over
low heat.

Preheat oven 350 degrees.

Spread the fillo dough and cut it into nine (three by three) equal
sections. Stack three layers of fillo dough, brushing the bottom
two layers with butter. Place 1 tsp of nuts at one end and roll

Repeat until you've used up all the fillo dough.

Place the rolled up pieces in a buttered baking pan, leave no space
between pieces. Brush the top with butter.

Bake for 15 minutes at 350. Lower to 300 and bake until lightly
golden (lift one of the pieces and check the bottom). This should
take between 15 and 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and pour the syrup on it immediately. Let it
sit for about an hour to absorb the syrub. After the first few
minutes you might want to tilt the tray back and forth a couple
times to make sure the syrup spreads around.
