Stuffed Kadaifi (Kadayif Dolmasi)

1 lb kadaifi
150 grams butter
1 cup walnuts/pecans, in chunks

For the Syrup:
3 cups water
2 ½ -3 cups sugar
1 tsp lemon juice

First mix sugar and water in a pot and boil the syrup for about 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and let it cool.
Melt butter and drizzle all over the kadaifi. Using your hands, try to mix the butter with kadaifi evenly. If the kadaifi pieces are too long, break them into smaller pieces with your hands. After tossing the kadaifi, take a small Turkish coffee cup and fill half of it with kadaifi and make a hole in the middle. Place about 1 tsp walnuts/pecans inside and fill the rest of the cup with more kadaifi. Gently press on top of the cup. Grease an oven tray and flip the cup upside down on the tray. Make sure to press on top of the kadaifi before flipping, otherwise the shape won’t come out well. Use the same procedure for all the kadaifi left.
Bake it at 350 F (180 C) preheated oven until they get light brown. Pour the cold syrup over the hot stuffed kadaifi right after taking out of oven. Let it absorb the syrup for at least 3-5 hours.
ENJOY
