For the Sweet Syrup:

Bring these ingredients to a boil. Simmer for 20 minutes. Cool

1 lb. shelled pistaccio nuts grounded
2 tsp sugar
Mix together

1 pkg phylo pastry dough

Divide phylo in half. Keep covered under a damp towel until ready. Mix nuts, sugar and water. Lightly grease with the butter a 9 x 13 pan. Butter each sheet as you add them. Put some nut mixture 1/3rd the way through. Add more phyllo layers buttering each sheet. Add the rest of the nut mixture and over with the remaining sheets buttering each layer. Cut 3/4 thru diagonally.
