TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups torn fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 7 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Directions

  • 1. In a small skillet, cook onions in oil until tender. Stir in spinach; cook and stir for 2 minutes longer. Cool and squeeze dry. In a large bowl, combine the cheese, dill and parsley. Stir in spinach mixture; set aside.
  • 2. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a lightly floured surface. Lightly brush with butter. Top with another sheet of phyllo dough; brush with butter. Repeat with remaining dough. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Place a 6-oz. custard cup upside down on dough. Cut around custard cup with a small pizza cutter.
  • 3. Place about 4 teaspoons of cheese mixture in the center of each circle. Bring edges of circle up and around cheese, forming a tart. Brush dough with butter.
  • 4. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and spinach mixture is hot. Yield: 6 tarts.
