The end result is worthy of 5 stars, but since I took other reviewers advice, the recipe as written gets four. Fabulous base recipe. I did add a little squeeze of lemon and it's zest and increased syrup by a half, making it in advance so it could cool before pouring it over the hot baklava. It makes a key difference. I've made this several times, and everyone who eats it proclaims that it's the best baklava they've ever eaten, anywhere! Yes,it does take time and care to make, but I consider it a labour of love, especially when I gift whole pans of it to people I care about when they need cheering up!
