  Butter/Margarine 1 Cup (16 tbs), melted
  Honey 12 Ounce (1 Jar)
Directions

1. Grease 13" by 9" baking dish. In large bowl, mix finely chopped walnuts, sugar, and ground cinnamon.
2. Cut phyllo into 13" by 9" rectangles. In baking dish, place 1 sheet of phyllo; brush with some butter or margarine. Repeat to make 5 more layers of phyllo; sprinkle with 1 cup walnut mixture.
3. Place 1 sheet of phyllo in baking dish over walnut mixture; brush with melted butter or margarine. Repeat to make at least 6 layers, overlapping any small strips of phyllo to make rectangles, if necessary. Sprinkle 1 cup walnut mixture over phyllo. Repeat layering 2 times, ending with walnut mixture.

With sharp knife, cut just halfway through layers in triangle pattern to make 24 servings (cut lengthwise into 3 strips; cut each strip crosswise into 4 rectangles; then cut each rectangle diagonally into 2 triangles). Bake in 300°F. oven 1 hour and 25 minutes or until top is golden brown.
5. In small saucepan over medium-low heat, heat honey until hot but not boiling. Spoon hot honey evenly over hot Baklava. Cool Baklava in pan on wire rack at least 1 hour, then cover with foil and let stand at room temperature until serving.
