Print this Recipe    Walnut Baklava

4 cups walnuts -- chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 1/4 cups butter -- melted
1 1/2 pounds phyllo dough

4 cups sugar
3 cups water
1 1/2 cups honey
1 cinnamon stick
6 whole cloves

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Mix together the walnuts, sugar and
cinnamon. Select a pan the size of the phyllo sheets and brush well
with some melted butter.

Place 4 sheets phyllo, brushing each with butter, in the bottom of
the prepared pan. Top with a sheet of unbuttered phyllo then sprinkle
with a handful of the walnut mixture. Cover with a buttered sheet
then an unbuttered sheet and another sprinkling of walnuts. Repeat
this layering until all ingredients are used up, reserving 5 sheets
phyllo for the top.

Place last 5 sheets of phyllo, brushing each with butter, on top
of pastry and pour remaining butter over all. Cut the baklava into
traditional diamond pattern, being careful not to cut through bottom
layers. Bake for 1 hour.

Remove from oven and let cool.

Combine sugar and water in a large saucepan and boil for 5 minutes.
Add the honey, cinnamon stick and cloves and continue boiling 5
minutes longer. Pour hot syrup over completely cooled baklava.
Cool completely, cut through bottom layers following previous cuts
and serve.

Be sure baklava is completely cooled before adding hot syrup or it
will be soggy.
