1 pound unsalted butter
4-5 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 ½ cups water
3 cups sugar
2 TBS lemon juice
Using a sharp knife, cut into diamond or square shapes all the way to the bottom of the pan. Slice the baklava first vertically, then horizontally, working quickly as the dough will start to dry out! Pour the remaining butter over the top and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown on top.
It took Jeannie many years to hand over this fabulous, easy and delicious recipe to me. I looked forward to her making it every year during the Christmas
