Phyllo dough: 15 sheets
Butter: 1/4 cup (melted)
Walnuts: 1/2 cup (ground or well crushed)
Coconut powder, crushed pistachio: to decorate

Syrup Ingredients:

Sugar: 2 cups
Water: 1 cup
Rosewater: 1/4 cup
Cardamom: 1/8 tsp (optional)

Saffron: 1/8 tsp (optional)
Lemon juice: 1-2 drops (fresh, optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter the bottoms and sides of a 9x13 inch pan.
Unroll phyllo dough and cover with a slightly dampened cloth to keep from drying
out as you work.
Fold a phyllo sheet to fit the pan. Place it in the pan and butter thoroughly.
Repeat until you have 4 folded sheets layered. Sprinkle 2 - 3 tbsp of walnuts
(ground or well crushed) on top. Repeat this step 2 more times.
Top the last layer of nuts with a folded phyllo sheet, butter thoroughly and repeat
until you have no more phyllo sheets (you may or may not butter the last layer).
Use a sharp knife and cut into diamond or square shapes all the way to the
bottom of the pan.
Bake for about 40-45 minutes or until baklava is golden-brown and crisp.
While baklava is baking, make the syrup as follows: Boil sugar and water until
sugar is melted. Dissolve the saffron in 2 tbsp of hot water and add it to the syrup
(optional). Add cardamom to the syrup and simmer for about 15 minutes or until
the syrup is slightly thicken. Add the rosewater and simmer for one more minute.
Remove from the heat and add 1-2 drops of fresh lemon juice. Let the syrup to
be cooled. *
Remove baklava from oven and immediately pour the syrup over it. Decorate
with crushed pistachio or any other nuts of your choice and/or coconut powder.
Let cool. Do not cover it until it is fully cooled.
*: You can make the syrup beforehand, store it in the fridge for 1-2 months and
use it whenever you want. However, make sure to use the lemon juice drops if
you are going with this option. The baked baklava absorbs the syrup better if the
syrup is cold.
