  1. In a bowl, combine the walnuts, sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Grease a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish with some of the melted butter. Unroll phyllo dough sheets (keep dough covered with plastic wrap while assembling).
  2. Place one sheet of phyllo in baking dish; brush with butter. Top with a second sheet; brush with butter. Fold short ends under to fit the dish. Sprinkle with about 1/4 cup nut mixture. Repeat 18 times, layering two sheets, brushing with butter and sprinkling with nut mixture. Top with remaining dough; brush with butter. Cut into 2-in. diamonds with a sharp knife.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45-55 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the syrup ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Pour over warm baklava. Cool on a wire rack.


  • Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Athenos phyllo dough. The phyllo sheets measure 14 in. x 9 in.

OMgoodness! Thanks for this recipe. I only had 1/2 of the walnuts, so I used pecans for the other half. I followed the recipe exactly as posted. Loved it.

Yummm This is the first time I've worked with phyllo so I was thrilled about the easy to follow instructions. I love baklava & this recipe is excellent. I realized halfway through making it th...

A little too sweet for my family's taste - I'll adjust this the next time I make this recipe.

I'm not a fan of baklava, but had extra phyllo and guests, so we made this for them and they all loved it and want the recipe.
