Mix the walnuts with the cinnamon
and cloves. Butter a baking pan. Melt the remaining butter.
Spread a pastry sheet into the pan, and brush it with butter.
Continue to layer pastry and butter for 3 - 4 sheets. Sprinkle
with a layer of walnut mixture. Then resume with pastry
sheets, then with nuts, etc. To finish off, layer the last 4
pastry sheets and coat the top sheet with butter. Score with a
knife into diamond shapes. Bake at 350°F for 60 - 70 minutes.
To prepare the syrup, mix all the ingredients together and
bring to a boil. Cook for about 20 minutes, until thick, but
not hard. When the baklava has cooled pour the syrup over it.
Susie's Note: You can use any kind of nuts
or mixture of nuts for this. Almonds, raw peanuts, hazelnuts -
use your imagination !
