Baklava with walnuts


  • 1 pound phyllo pastry sheets
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 cups finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the finely chopped walnuts, granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, and ground cloves until well combined.
  3. Lay a sheet of phyllo pastry in the bottom of the greased baking dish and brush it with melted butter. Repeat with 7 more sheets, brushing each layer with butter.
  4. Sprinkle one-third of the nut mixture evenly over the phyllo pastry layers.
  5. Layer another 8 sheets of phyllo pastry on top of the nut mixture, brushing each sheet with butter.
  6. Add another layer of the nut mixture, using half of what remains.
  7. Layer another 8 sheets of phyllo pastry on top of the nut mixture, brushing each sheet with butter.
  8. Add the remaining nut mixture, spreading it evenly over the phyllo pastry.
  9. Layer the remaining phyllo pastry sheets on top, brushing each sheet with butter. Brush the top layer generously with butter.
  10. Using a sharp knife, cut the baklava into diamond or square shapes.
  11. Bake the baklava for 45 to 50 minutes, or until golden brown.
  12. While the baklava is baking, prepare the syrup. In a small saucepan, combine the honey, water, and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the syrup has thickened slightly.
  13. When the baklava is done baking, remove it from the oven and immediately pour the hot syrup over it, making sure to cover all the cut edges.
  14. Allow the baklava to cool completely before serving.

Enjoy your delicious and sweet Baklava with Walnuts!
