Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Chop the nuts very fine. You can do this by hand or in a food processor.
After the nuts are fine, mix the ground spices into them.
Ok, now comes the tricky bit. Unroll the phyllo and place it on a cookie sheet (or your counter top if it's clean enough). Mine measured 9x14 so I had to cut an inch off of one end so it would fit my baking dish. Now, cover the phyllo with plastic wrap and then with a damp cloth.
Place 4 to 6 sheets of phyllo in the bottom of your baking dish. Brush generously with the melted butter.
Sprinkle 5 to 6 tablespoons of the nut mixture evenly over the phyllo.
Add 2 more sheets of phyllo dough and brush with butter.
Continue to layer the nuts and phyllo sheets, brushing the sheets with butter as you go, until you have used all of the nut mixture.
For the top layer of phyllo, use 6 to 8 sheets, buttering each one.
Now, using a very sharp knife, cut the Baklava all the way through, into 4 long rows. Then cut diagonally to make diamond shapes.
Place in the preheated oven ad bake for 40-50 minutes, until golden brown.
