Print this Recipe    Baklava 03


3 oz blanched almonds, finely chopped
3 oz walnuts, finely chopped
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 pint clear honey
1 pkg fillo dough
3/4 oz butter, melted
juice of 1/2 lemon

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Mix the almonds and walnuts with cinnamon, allspice and 2 fluid
oz. of the honey.

Line an 8" square pan with foil. Cut 4 layers of the dough to fit
in the 8" square pan. Place one layer of dough in the pan and
brush with a little butter.

Cover with another layer of dough, then spread with the nut filling.
Cover with the 3rd layer of dough and brush it with butter. Cover
with the 4th layer of dough and brush it with butter, then cut
through the top two layers to mark out four squares.

Cut each in half again to make triangles. Bake for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile mix the lemon juice with the remaining honey, adding
enough water to make the mixture 1/4 pint. Bring to a boil and
simmer for 2 minutes.

Spoon over the hot baklava while it's still in the pan and leave
to soak for 2 hours before removing from the pan to cut and serve.
