You are in for a real treat when you try this, it's one of my favorite recipes for Greek baklava! it has brandy in the syrup which makes it special! You will need 3 pounds of pecans, roughly 1 pound of melted butter and whole cloves. It is not really necessary to insert a whole clove on top of each slice of baklava, I do so only on the holidays.
