Print this Recipe    Baklava

1 lb butter or margarine
1 lb filo dough
1 lb walnuts (ground)
1/4 lb almonds (ground)
3 1/2 cup sugar
1 stick cinnamon
1 tsp to 1 Tbsp cinnamon (ground)
3-4 whole cloves
1/4 to 1 tsp ground cloves

Melt the butter and clarify it if you wish (I usually use margarine,
and don't attempt to clarify it if I do use butter). Mix the walnuts,
almonds, 1/2 cup sugar and ground spices together. Butter a 9"x13"
pan. Layer in five sheets of filo, buttering each. Now alternate
layering small handfuls of nuts with two sheets of filo (buttering
each. You can get away with buttering every other sheet, but not
more.) until everything is used up. Cut into diamond shape pieces
(carefully, with a sharp knife), and bake in a 350 degree (F) oven
for I believe an hour and 15 minutes, or 'until golden brown (I do
this by eye).

While it is baking, in a heavy saucepan, heat 1 cup water, and the
remaining 3 cup sugar, and the whole spices. Bring to a boil over
low to med heat, and then turn down and cook for ~15 min. When the
stuff in the oven is done, pour the sauce over the top and let it
set for a few minutes. Eat Hot or cold.
