AMAZING! I love baklava and these are a wonderful twist on my favorite dessert. The lemon adds an interesting flavor, slight more tangy than traditional baklava, but still great. I have had some baklava where the honey flavor was overwhelming, but the combo of the walnuts, honey, lemon and cinnamon flavors blend very well in this recipe giving it a slightly different, but still very delicious flavor. The crispiness from the phyllo dough give the mouth feel, texture and "crunch" of traditional baklava. I cut these into small squares, placed in a cupcake liner and drizzled with honey. They will be served at our upscale school auction tonight and I have no doubt that they will go fast!
