Ingredients

1 pound phyllo (filo) pastry sheets
1 cup ghee (clarified butter)
melted
1 ½ cups walnuts
chopped
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
teaspoon cloves
ground
*
1 ½ cups sugar
¾ cup water
½ teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey

Directions

Combine last 4 ingredients.

Butter bottom of 16x10x2 pan generously.

Lay half of Phyllo dough in pan, brushing each sheet with butter.

Mix nuts and spices with sugar and sprinkle evenly over dough.

Lay on rest of Phyllo dough, buttering each layer.

Brush top layer with butter. All butter should be used. If not, drizzle rest of butter over top too.

Cut into diamond shaped pieces without cutting through bottkom.

Bake in a preheated 350℉ (180℃). oven on a shelf a little above center until lightly golden, finish cutting and allow to cool.

Pour warm honey-lemon syrup over baked Baklava.

Serve warm or cold.

Syrup: Combine and bring to a boil and simmer one minute.

This is a great recipe.

Don't think that you have to boil the syrup more than one minute.

It will be thin. Another secret that a Lebanese friend told me is to either put hot syrup over cold pastry or cold syrup over hot pastry. You might try other nuts, but I think Walnuts are the best. Pistachios were probably the original nut, but everyone around here uses Walnuts.
