1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon orange blossom water
squeeze lemon

1 box phillo dough
3 cups chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons mazaher
2 sticks melted unsalted butter

Cook syrup first so that, if you mess up the syrup, you can make

For the walnut mix - mix walnuts, mazaher and honey. Mix honey in
so that the walnuts stick together but are not dripping.

place 1 sheet of phillo on top of butter. Brush sheet with butter
then put another sheet on top of that one. Continue until you've
used 1/3 of the phillo.

space at the edges. Cover with the rest of the phillo, spreading
butter between each sheet.

Make sure the top of the baklava has butter spread all over it.

at a time using a spoon or ladle.
