1 lb filo dough
2 lbs butter
1 1/2 c. walnuts, ground fine
1 bottle orange flower water
3 1/2 c. sugar (or more to taste)
1 3/4 c. water
juice of 2 lemons

Mix nuts with 1/2 c. sugar, or more to taste. Add 1 1/2 Tblsp.
orange flower water.

Make syrup ahead of time. Mix 3 c. sugar and water to boil; boil
1/2 hr. Add lemon juice, and 1 1/2 Tblsp. orangeflower water.

Melt butter. Line 13x9 pan with butter. Separate dough in half;
cut to fit pan. Keep left-over pieces of dough to fill in spaces.

Separate sheets of dough and put 2 sheets together. Add 2 sheets
at a time to pan and then butter well. Add 2 more sheets and butter
again. You can fill in layers with pieces. Continue until half
the dough is used.

Add layer of nuts, and then repeat procedure as you did for the
bottom half. Butter top layer and cut into diamonds with sharp
knife.

Pour remaining butter over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or
until golden brown.

Let cool slightly, and add some of the syrup. Then cool completely.
Use remainder of syrup to "freshen them up" when you serve or eat
them.
