Ingredients

1 package phyllo dough (16 oz.)
1 c. butter, melted
Filling:
1 lb. chopped toasted walnuts
1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
Syrup:
1 c. water
1 c. sugar
1 c. honey
2 tsp. lemon juice or a strip of lemon peel
1 cinnamon stick (optional)


Preheat oven to 350, and grease a 9x13 pan.


Mix walnuts,cinnamon and cloves, and set aside.


[Phyllo can be really hard to work with.


You should keep a moist cloth over the dough you are not working with, to keep it from drying out.]


Layer 1 sheet of phyllo on the bottom of the prepared pan.


Brush melted butter over it and top with a second sheet.


Continue this until you have layered 8-10 phyllo sheets.


Sprinkle 1/3 of the nut mixture over the phyllo and then repeat the layering 2 times, ending with layers of phyllo.


Cut into diamonds about 2-3" wide.


Bake for 45 minutes.


Meanwhile, heat sugar, honey, water and lemon juice in a sauce pan.


Bring to a boil to thicken slightly, and then remove from heat.


Pour over the baklava when you take it out of the oven.


Let cool and serve.
