DIRECTIONS

  • Spread out one sheet of phyllo dough.
  • Keep the other sheets covered with a damp towel to prevent from drying and becoming brittle.
  • Lightly brush with butter or spray the oil.
  • Place another sheet of phyllo dough on top of the first sheet.
  • Brush 2nd sheet with butter or oil and sprinkle the nut, sugar, and cinnamon filling lightly over whole sheet.
  • Place a third sheet of phyllo dough over first two sheets.
  • Brush with butter or oil and lightly sprinkle nut filling again.
  • Roll the 3 sheets up tightly as you would a cigar or jellyroll.
  • Slice diagonally into 1 or 2 inch pieces and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet with sides *make sure you have sides on your cookie sheet (aka "jelly roll pan").
  • Repeat until all the phyllo dough and filling have been used, using three sheets for each roll.
  • Brush tops of baklava pieces with melted butter and sprinkle with raw (turbinado) sugar.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven to cool. Leave in pan.
  • In a saucepan heat the honey, sugar, water, and lemon rind together and bring to a boil for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Pour over cooled baklava pieces. You may have to turn them once to make sure they are completely saturated with the syrup.
  • Let them stay in pan long enough to absorb the syrup.
  • Eat and then serve what is left; or serve and eat. It is your choice, but I guarantee there will never be any left!
  • Cover and refrigerate. These can be frozen.
