1/2 pound Unsalted butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 tsp. Cardamom
1 tsp. Lemon Juice
1 1/2 cups Water
First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Next, melt the butter over very low heat. Combine freshly ground cardamom cinnamon in a small bowl. Lay two layers of fillo dough on a baking sheet, and pour two tablespoons of melted butter over the dough. Use a pastry brush to spread the butter. Next, sprinkle a thin layer of fresh almond nuts, and a small amount of the cinnamon/cardamom mixture. Repeat this until you have several layers. On the top layer, only spread melted butter. Bake the baklava at 375 degrees, until the fillo dough is golden brown. At this point, remove the baklava from the oven and prepare the syrup.
For the syrup: Combine one and one-half cups of water with one and one-half cups of sugar, and one teaspoon of fresh lemon juice. Bring the mix to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. While the baklava is still warm, cut it into small triangle shapes and drizzle the syrup over the baklava. To finish, sprinkle with crushed pistachio nuts.
