Print this Recipe    Baklava 21


1 pkg philo dough
8 oz walnuts
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
almonds (optional, do 2 parts walnuts to 1 part almonds)
3 sticks butter
3/4 cups sugar

1/2 water
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups honey
3 or 4 lemon slices
1 cinnamon stick

Dissolve sugar in water, bring to boil. Add honey, cinnamon stick
and lemon slices, reduce heat and let simmer for about 20 minutes.
Strain and leave to cool.

Preheat oven to 325-350.

In a food processor, grind nuts, mix with sugar, cinnamon and
nutmeg. Set aside. Melt butter. In a large pan place 2 layers
philo, butter them lightly, then 2 more sheets, repeating this
until you have about 8 or 10 layers. Add 1/3 of the nut mixture.
Cover with 2 more layers, lightly butter, repeat until you have
about 6 layers, add another third of the nut mixture. Repeat this
until you have used all the nut mixture, then layer the remaining
philo and butter on top.

Take a sharp knife and cut diagonal through the top layers of philo
(not past the top nut layer, and about 1 1/2 - 2 inches wide).
Turn and do the same on the opposite diagonal, to form diamond
shapes. Bake for 1 hour, or until golden. Turn oven off and let
baklava sit in oven for 1 more hour.

Remove, pour cooled syrup over hot baklava. Take knife and slice
all the way through the cuts you made previously. Let cool.
