Layer and brush six more sheets of dough with butter; top with remaining cranberry mixture. Top with the remaining dough, brushing each sheet with butter.

Soggy and tart. Time consuming, yet easy. I probably won't wake again, but the guests liked it.

This was great...first time making Baklava. Did not use the honey topping. This is definitely not a reduced calorie recipe though. I did add more cranberry and I covered for half the cook time.

This was easy and delicious, and everyone devoured it! I followed others' suggestions and cut the honey with a little water to make a thinner syrup. I will be making this again soon!

I loved this recipe, I used raspberry's instead of cranberry's, but it was delicious! All of my friends and family loved it! I would definitely bake this again!
