Baklava with Walnuts

Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Servings 10


  • phyllo pastry - 2 lb (1 kg), sheets
  • sugar - 6 cups
  • walnuts - 1 2/3 cups (400 g), ground
  • butter - 2 2/3 cups (625 g)
  • lemons - 1
  • water - 4 cups


  • Arrange the phyllo pastry sheets carefully in a buttered oven dish, one atop the other, without adding any oil in between them. Distribute the walnuts evenly in the middle in 2 spots (not at the very top).
  • Cut it into rhombuses. Melt the butter (without letting it boil) and pour evenly, while still hot, over the baklava. Bake in a moderate oven until golden. Leave it to cool completely.
  • Make a syrup from the sugar and water, let it boil for 5 min. while stirring nonstop. Finally, add the juice of 1 lemon and a little lemon zest to the syrup.
  • Pour it over the baklava and leave it to sit overnight to soak it in well. Enjoy!
