Type: Greek baklava Free Cooking Recipe – Greek

Good stuff!

Ingredients / Directions

Directions:
Filling
* 500 gr. walnuts
coarsely chopped
* 60 gr. sugar
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Pastry
* 500 gr. fyllo pastry
* 180 gr. unsalted butter
melted

Syrup
* 230 gr. caster sugar
* 300 ml water
* 2 cinnamon sticks
* 2 teaspoons lemon juice
* some lemon peel
* 2 tablespoons honey Mix all the filling ingredients in a bowl.
Liberally butter the base and sides of an elongated or round baking dish. Measure the length of the fyllo against the baking dish roughly and
allowing 2 cm extra approximately for shrinkage
cut to length with a sharp knife. Brush each layer of fyllo with melted butter and spread over the base of the container as evenly as possible. Once you have used 5 layers of pastry
sprinkle a thin layer of filling all over the surface and add 3 more layers. Sprinkle a thin layer of filling and place 2 more sheets of fyllo on top. Sprinkle on all the remaining filling
spreading it evenly
and cover with 7-8 more layers of fyllo
brushing individually with butter. Fold any excess pastry on either of the sides over the filling and brush it with butter. Brush the top layer liberally with butter in order to get it crisp and golden. Trim any excess pastry with a small sharp knife
keeping in mind that it will also shrink. Cut the top layers of fyllo carefully
either diagonally into diamond shapes or straight
which will result in square or elongated pieces. Be careful not to cut right down to the base
but only the top layers. This is done in order to make cutting and lifting the pieces out
once it is cooked
much easier and efficient. Using the tips of four fingers
sprinkle drops of water all over the surface and cook it in a preheated oven
gas no.5/ 375 grades F / 190 grades C
for 15 minutes; lower the heat to gas no.4/ 350 grades F/ l80 grades C and cook for a further 20 minutes.
In the meantime
prepare the syrup. Place all the syrup ingredients
apart from the honey
in a saucepan and stir to dissolve the sugar. Simmer for 6-8 minutes
add the honey and simmer for a further 5 minutes until it thickens slightly. Let the baklava cool down then pour the hot but not boiling syrup slowly all over
through a strainer. Let it stand and absorb the syrup.
