1 pack of filo dough
1 lb walnuts, chopped medium fine
1 tsp vanilla (or use vanilla sugar)
4 tablespoons of butter, melted
4 1/4 cups sugar
2 cups water
1 tsp lemon juice
Make the syrup first. Boil the water and sugar for 15 minutes. Add lemon juice, boil 10 more minutes, set aside to cool. Then make the filling - mix the walnuts, 1/4 cup of sugar and vanilla. Take out a sheet of dough and place it in the pan. Brush the dough with melted butter. Repeat 10-12 times. Spread the walnut filling across the tray. Do the rest of the dough sheets in the same way as the first 10-12. Cut the surface into squares or diamonds. Bake on 325 degrees for about 60 minutes or until golden brown. Let it cool a bit and add the syrup. Let cool down before serving. Best served chilled.
