Melt butter. Place one sheet of pastry in well buttered 11 x 17 inch baking pan, then spread with melted butter. Plan second sheet on top of the first and butter again. Repeat until 6 layers of buttered pastry sheets have been built up, the sprinkle top sheet thickly with walnuts. Place the rest of th sheets one on top of the other, buttering each generously. When finished, cut into diagonal sections across the pan and. cut intersecting diagonals to form diamonds. Bake in moderate Oven for 45 minutes, until golden. Excess butter may be drained off after baking. Cook sugar and water to syrup about 5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved at a boil. If syrup is cooked too long, it will crystallize on pastry when cool. Add a few drops of lemon juice, and pour hot over cooled baklava. Cover and set for 30 minutes. Serve cold.
