Baklava Recipe




2 Pkts phyllo pastry, thawed

1 cup unsalted butter, melted

4 cups walnuts, finely chopped

1 t ground cinnamon

1 cup sugar

2 T lemon juice

3/4 cup water

1/2 cup honey



Cut phyllo pastry to fit your baking dish. Cut each roll at a time, then cover with a damp towel to keep it from drying out.


Butter the bottom and sides of a non-stick baking pan.


Combine 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup honey, 2 T lemon juice, and 3/4 cup water in a pot. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved.. Remove from heat and let syrup cool.


Preheat Oven to 180C.


Pulse the walnuts in a food processor until coarsely ground/ finely chopped, then add the cinnamon.

Place 5 phyllo sheets into baking pan one at a time, brushing each sheet with butter once it’s in the pan before adding the next (i.e. place phyllo sheet into pan, brush the top with butter, place next phyllo sheet in pan, butter the top, and so on.). Keep remaining phyllo covered with a damp towel at all times. Spread about 1/5 of nut mixture (about 3/4 cup) over phyllo dough.
