 Categories: Turkish, Greek, Desserts
      Yield: 24 servings
      1 lb Phyllo pastry sheets
    3/4 lb Sweet butter; melted

      3 c  Milk
    1/3 c  Sugar
    1/4 ts Salt
    1/2 c  Fine grain semolina

  2 2/3 c  Sugar
      2 c  Water
      2 tb Lemon juice
  Preheat oven to 350 F after the filling has been prepared.
  Divide the pastry into 2-equal parts.  Lay 1 sheet on a well-buttered

  butter.  Lay second sheet on top of first and butter.  Repeat until
  half of the pastry sheets have been used.

  Prepare the filling:  Over medium heat bring milk, sugar and salt to
  a boil in a saucepan.  Add farina by sprinkling in a little at a
  time, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and the farina
  is well cooked.
  Spread the hot farina mixture evenly over the entire surface of pastry
  sheets.  Again build up the remaining half of the pastry sheets,
  buttering each surface generously, on top of farina.  Pour the
  remaining butter over the top.  Cut pastry sheets into 24 equal
  squares.  Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until light golden.
  While the baklava is cooking prepare syrup:  Place sugar, water, and
  lemon juice in a saucepan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring
  constantly, until sugar is dissolved.  Bring to a boil and simer for
  15 minutes without stirring.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  Remove baklava from oven.  Pour off all excess butter by tilting the
  pan. Cook for 10 minutes.  Brush surface lightly with some of the
  drained butter to give luster to the pastry.  Pour syrup over a
  little at a time, until all is absorbed.  Allow to cool for several
