1 lb. phyllo dough (Apollo preferred)

1 stick of sweet butter

½ lb. almonds or walnuts (or a combination of the two, or green pistachios)



powdered sugar

2 cups sugar

1 cup water

fresh lemon juice

syrup: in a saucepan, bring to boil 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup of water, and juice from a squeezed fresh lemon. When it begins to thicken, turn off the stove and pour in rose water (optional). It gives a great aroma.

In a bowl, mix the nuts with the spices and 1 tbsp. of powder sugar. In a rectangle pan, brush the melted butter, then one by one place the phyllo brushing each one with the butter until about 8 sheets of phyllo are spread. Then put some of the mix, then 2 sheets of phyllo. Repeat until the mix is finished. Then 6 sheets of phyllo with the butter until it is over. Brush with butter and add 2 or 3 drops of water all over. Cut the baklava in small squares, and place it in a preheated oven for about 1 hour. When you take it out, place over the already prepared cool syrup. Good Luck!
