Apple Rum Baklava

3 cups chopped apples                               
2 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

2 tablespoons rum

Arrange in baking pan, brushing each sheet generously with melted butter. Spread half the apple mixture over phyllo dough. Arrange 6 buttered sheets phyllo dough over apple mixture. Spread with remaining apple mixture. Top with 8 buttered sheets phyllo dough. Cut into squares. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Heat honey in small saucepan.
