  • Combine all the nuts and next 3 ingredients, stirring well.
  • Cut phyllo sheets in half crosswise; cover with plastic wrap to keep from drying out..
  • Brush 2 (13- x 9- x 2-inch) baking pans with melted butter. Place 8 phyllo sheets in 1 pan, brushing each sheet with butter; top with 2 cups nut mixture.
  • Place 3 phyllo sheets over nut mixture, brushing each sheet with butter; top with 2 cups nut mixture. Repeat with 3 more phyllo sheets and 2 cups nut mixture; top with 6 phyllo sheets, brushing all but the top sheet with butter. Repeat procedure with remaining phyllo sheets, butter, and nut mixture in second pan.
  • Cut layers diagonally into 3/4-inch diamonds; gently brush with remaining butter. Insert a clove in center of each diamond.
  • Bake at 300° for 1 hour. Remove from oven, and pour syrup evenly over baklava. Cool completely in pans on wire racks.
  • Cut again diagonally; remove from pans, and store in airtight containers at room temperature. Can also be frozen and thawed for later use.

    While I understand that you want "authentic" (whatever that means as there are as many styles of greek cooking and baking as there are islands in Greece) recipes in your group, I am not the one who submitted it to your group. Someone else did that, so I'd appreciate it if you didn't leave negative msgs on my recipes anymore such as "real Greek baklava doesn't have have...." etc etc. My mother was born in Athens, Greece and this is how SHE makes it. I never claimed it was authentic anything. Anyone on GR has the ability to add ANY recipe to a group. Have a nice day.

    Baklava is a true weakness for me, there is something about having some Baklava, a nice cup of strong black coffee and maybe just a touch of uzo. thanks for the great recipe you definitly got my 5.

    Wow! I can't wait to try this recipe. I love baklava and this one sounds terrific.

    As I don't make a lot of desserts I'm unsure as to what a good brand of honey is. Usually I just buy that one that looks like a plastic bear.
