2 lb. filo dough

8 c. shelled walnuts to be coarsely chopped

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 1/2 lb. sweet butter, melted


7 c. sugar

5 c. water

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 stick cinnamon

Butter a 12x17 inch pan lightly. Cut filo the size of the pan. Brush each sheet lightly with butter until you have 5 buttered sheets of filo. Do not allow

filo to dry because it will break apart. Keep it covered with a damp towel. Place one sheet on bottom of pan.

Combine nuts and cinnamon. Add a layer of nuts mixture on top of dough. Alternate layers of buttered filo and nuts until you have added 5 sheets. Cut through

with a sharp knife to make diamond-shaped pieces, about 1 1/2 inches. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven on rack in center of the oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

To make syrup: Boil all ingredients together for about 30 minutes until it reaches syrupy consistency. Pour warm syrup over warm Baklava. Makes 5 dozen.
