  1. Beat eggs until light. Fold in almonds and sugar. Stir in fruit. Take 2 sheets of phyllo pastry, brush one at a time with melted butter, and place one on top of the other.

  2. On the long end of the phyllo sheet spread some of the fruit-and-nut mixture in a band about 1 inch wide. Fold in ends and roll like a jelly-roll. Place on a cookie sheet and brush top with melted butter.

  3. Make diagonal slits along the whole length, about 1 1/2 inches apart, being careful not to cut all the way through. Continue making the rolls until all nut mixture is used. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for about 1 1/2 hours or until golden brown. Cut pieces through entire roll.

  4. Dip hot baklava pieces in cold syrup and drain well.

  5. Syrup: In a saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil and boil for 20 minutes. Cool.
