16 oz phyllo dough thawed by package instructions
1 1/4 cups unsalted butter 10 oz or 2 1/2 sticks, melted
1 lb walnuts, finely chopped (about 4 cups)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup granulated sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice juice of 1/2 lemon
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup honey
Melted chocolate chips & chopped walnuts for garnish optional
- Prep: Thaw phyllo dough by package instructions (this is best done overnight in the fridge, then place it on the counter for 1 hr before starting your recipe to bring it to room temp).
- Trim phyllo dough to fit your baking dish. My phyllo package had 2 rolls with a total of 40 sheets that measured 9x14 so I had to trim them slightly. You can trim one stack at a time then cover with a damp towel to keep from drying out..
