DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325. Layer half of the sheets of phyllo one sheet at a time, in a greased 11x7x2 baking pan, brushing each sheet evenly with butter and folding ends over if necessary to fit into pan.
  • Keep unused sheets covered with plastic wrap while assembling baklava to prevent drying.
  • Mix 1/4 cup of the sugar and cinnamon; stir in walnuts.
  • Sprinkle nut mixture evenly over buttered phyllo in pan.
  • Layer remaining phyllo, one sheet at a time, over nut mixture, brushing each sheet evenly with butter.
  • Cut diagonally into squares, cutting completely through all layers.
  • Bake in preheated oven until crisp and golden, about one hour.
  • Combine remaining sugar, the water, lemon juice and honey in small saucepan; cook and stir over low heat until sugar dissolves.
  • Heat to boiling; pour evenly over hot baklava.
  • Let stand loosely covered 8 hours or overnight.
