Ingredients:

Directions:
Heat oven to 400. Butter 9x13 baking pan. Put 5 leaves of filo straight in the bottom of the pan. Brush melted butter on each leaf. Wrinkle two leaves onto each end of the pan. (If you ever make this recipe, call me and I will explain what wrinkling is). Butter and sprinkle generously with nuts. Wrinkle more leaves, one on each side, butter and sprinkle with nuts. Turn extra leaves in round edges. Repeat process until you have used all nuts, filo and butter. Place several sheets of filo straight across top, always brushing melted butter between sheets.
Cut into diamond shapes using very sharp knife as filo tends to tear. Bake 1/2 hour until golden brown.
Meanwhile, boil 1 cup water, two cups sugar and two lbs honey in saucepan until boiling.

Take the filo out of the oven and place on counter. Pour honey mixture over the top of the filo, making sure you distribute evenly on all of the filo. Watch the mixture bubble as it distributes itself between the thin layers of filo.
