I'm giving this recipe 4 stars because it lacks some important info but as a base it is a yummy baklava recipe. You need to melt the butter and brush on with pastry brush or you even use a BBQ sauce brush. Set the butter on the warmer to keep it from hardening while you work. Also, do not put a wet towel directly onto phyllo dough! This will dampen your dough and make it gummy and gross. Always put wax paper between dough and damp cloth. I used almost 2 tsp of cinnamon but that its personal preferance. Use 3/4 cup of water instead of 1, and 1/3 cup of honey instead of 1/2 for a less soggy baklava.~~~ Also, another reviewer recommended freezing the baklava for 15 minutes, then cutting into triangles before baking. I used this method and got great results.
