  1            package  filo dough
     1/2         pound  melted butter
  1              pound  walnuts -- ground
  1              pound  ground almonds
  1                cup  sugar

  1                cup  sugar
Butter a square baking pan which is 10  x 12. Put 4 sheets of dough to fit the pan and place them on the top of one another with a bit of melted butter sprinkled in between the layers. Then combine the ground nuts with the sugar and sprinkle about 4 tablespoons of it on the dough and place another sheet of dough over it and continue in this fashion, sprinkling nuts and small bit of the butter and placing a sheet of dough over it until dough and nuts are used. There should be about 15 layers or more. Then top with 3 more sheets of dough, (butter sprinkled in between) and press dough firmly, but carefully, down.
Then cut in diamond shaped pieces with a sharp knife. Dribble the last of the butter over it and bake in a 300=BA oven for about 45 min., or until golden brown. Prepare syrup, meanwhile: Boil together the honey, sugar, water and lemon until it thickens a bit-about 20 min. Remove the lemon and syrup over baclava as soon as it is removed from the oven. Let stand and when it s cool, it is ready to serve.
