Prepare the dough according to the dough for the baklava recipe. Place the dough pieces on each other on a wood cutting board. Cut these pieces according to the size of the tray where they will be cooked. Grease the tray lightly and place one layer of dough over. Pour 1/2 Tablespoon melted margarine over the dough. Place only half of the pieces of dough on the tray so that there is one layer of dough, and margarine over that. When half of the dough is used up, sprinkle ground walnuts.
