Shortcut Baklava



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Let piecrusts stand according package directions. Unfold; place one crust on an ungreased cookie sheet. For filling, in a small bowl, stir together walnuts, sugar, the 2 tablespoons honey, the cinnamon, and lemon juice. Spread over piecrust on cookie sheet, leaving about a 1/2-inch border. Top with remaining piecrust. Seal edges of piecrusts by pressing with the tines of a fork, or pinch and flute the edges. Prick top piecrust all over with a fork. In a small bowl, stir together the 1 tablespoon honey and the water. Brush mixture over top piecrust. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon-sugar.
  2. Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden. Cool on cookie sheet on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Cut into 16 wedges. Cool completely.
