1 cup sugar
cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 strip of lemon peel
1 cinnamon stick
2 cloves
1 tablespoon rose water (optional)

3 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, melted and clarified

Layer 8 phylo sheets, one at a time, in the bottom, brushing each sheet with butter. Sprinkle 1/3 of nut mixture on top. Place 6 to 8 more phylo sheets, following the same procedure. Sprinkle half of the remaining nut mixture. Top with another 6 to 8 buttered phylo sheets and cover with remaining nut mixture. End with 8 buttered phylo sheets on top. Butter top sheet generously.
Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Using a sharp knife, cut the baklava into 25 to 30 diamond shapes. Bake for 30 minutes, then reduce heat to 300F (180C). Bake 15 or 20 minutes longer or until the top is golden.
Remove from the oven immediately and pour syrup over hot baklava. Let cool completely.
