Thaw phyllo dough according to package directions.
Grease an 11x17 jelly roll pan.
Chop nuts in food processor or blender.
Combine nuts, sugar, cinnamon and cloves.
Place 4 sheets of phyllo dough in pan, brush butter on every sheet.
Repeat the following layers: nuts, phyllo, butter
Plan to run out of nuts when only 4 sheets remain.
Complete the final layers buttering each one.
With electric knife cut diagonal rows one way and straight rows the other. It is important to cut BEFORE baking.
Bake at 350(F) degrees for 45 minutes until golden brown.
While baking, put honey on stove on low setting so it comes to a boil just as baking is complete.
Immediately upon removal from oven, pour boiling honey over entire pan. The layers will rise up and settle back down.
Let cool, then serve.
Many thanks to John Kavor for sharing his family recipe.
The pieces along the outside don't look very pretty, they are darker and droop, but they are delicious. I keep these pieces for my family and give the prettier pieces to friends.
