Baklavas (baklava)


1 pack filo pastry sheets
2 cups walnuts
2 cups almonds
1 cup butter or margarine (or half cup butter and half margarine)
1/2 teaspoon cloves
2 teaspoons cinnamon

For the syrup:
2 cups water
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup honey
peels of one lemon

We cut the walnuts and the almonds into the desirable size. We mix them with clove and cinnamon. We brush a lot with melted butter a big square baking pan. We lay the first 4 sheets, buttering between every two of them. Sift with our mixture and we lay 2 more sheets, with butter between them. We keep 4 sheets for the top and we lay the rest as we ‘ve described above. We cut the baklavas in pieces and we pour the rest butter over the top. We bake for about 40 minutes in 170ο C. While our baklavas is in the oven we shall prepare the syrup. We put all the ingredients for the syrup and we boil them for 5 minutes. When the baklavas is ready remove the baklavas from the oven and pour over the syrup immediately.
