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.
