Really yummy, and I got alot of people at the office asking me for the recipe! My boss wanted Middle Eastern food for a meeting- Got the food, but the place that I got it from doesn't have good baklava, so I made it myself. The ONLY thing I would change on the recipe is that I didn't need to cut the sheets b/c they fit the size of the cookie sheets. I think it just depends on the brand you get. I measured the standard ones at the store, and they are alot shorter on both ends, so the directions that NEONWILLIE gave is probably correct. I layered at least 8 sheets on the bottom, 2 first, butter, 2 more, butter, etc. Then 1/3 of the nuts, 2 more sheets, butter, 2 more sheets, 1/3 of the nuts, etc. Using onlly 2-3 T. of nuts, you would end up w/ too many nuts at the end. Also, I doubled up the syrup, because I like mine sticky- and that is proportionate to what was called for on the recipe on the box. On the phyllo dough box recipe, they added in 1/8 t. cloves- I did a sprinkle so I wouldn't deviate too far from this recipe, and it came out really good. (Boss was happy!)
