Layer ingredients:

1 lb. kadaifi, shredded
1 lb. butter, melted
1 lb. walnuts, finely chopped

Syrup ingredients:

2 1/4 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups water
lemon juice (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. maple syrup

  1. Boil syrup ingredients until thickened and stringy. Cool.

  2. In round, ungreased pan layer kadaifi, sprinkling with nuts and then butter. Lowest layer should be a bit thicker. Repeat until all kadaifi is used, allowing for another thicker layer on top. Do not top with nuts. Bake one hour at 375 degrees until browned.

  3. Pour cooled syrup over hot kadaifi. Cool, then cut into diamond or square shapes.
