1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups chopped walnuts
1 cup melted butter
Baklava Syrup
1 cup granulated sugar

Directions

Repeat layers.
Cut baklava into desired serving sizes bake 45-50 minutes.
Combine remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low.
