A recipe for what I'm fairly sure is Baklava,  Bourma.

1 lb. butter
1 lb. walnuts
1 lb. philo

2 cups sugar
2 cups water
lemon juice - boil together for 1/2 hour then cool

Fold one sheet of philo in half, sprinkle with nuts

Roll and twist, bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes

Arrange in pan, not too close together

Melt butter, spread on each while hot

Remove and pour sugar on each

Grind walnuts and mix with 2 tbs. sugar and cinnamon.

Even The Best in American Cooking can stand an infusion of phyllo, butter, sugar, and nuts :^)
