Many years ago I got this recipe
 from a Greek Festival in AZ

1 1/2 lb melted Butter

1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 C Sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
2 Lbs Walnuts - chopped

2 lbs Filo dough *
while making this, make sure you cover the
dough as the sheets dry out quickly
I use a wet towel

 and will stick together an will be impossible to separate

Combine walnuts, spices and sugar in a mixing bowl

Brush the bottom of a 14x20 in pan with melted butter
an place one piece of filo on top of the butter layer

brush w melted butter, repeating this process
for a total of 8 layers.

Brush the 8th layer with melted butter,
sprinkle with nut mixture,
repeating the process until all
of the nut mixture is used. 

Then repeat 8 layers of buttered filo layers

 Cut into diamond shape:
Cut in rows

 then cut diagonally

Bake 15-20 min until lightly
gold at 350 degrees
reduce to 250 degrees for 1.5 hrs

4 C Sugar
2 C water
1/2 C honey
1/2 lemon slice

Boil water and sugar
with a slice of lemon
 until it is dissolved and form as a syrup
Stir in honey and cool.
Spoon cooled syrup over the hot pastry
