Directions

  2. Melt remaining butter. Layer and brush five phyllo sheets with melted butter. (Keep remaining phyllo dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Cut buttered sheets lengthwise into 2-in. strips. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of filling at one end of each strip; fold into a triangle, as you would fold a flag.Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with butter. Repeat three times, using five sheets of phyllo each time.

Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Athenos phyllo dough. The phyllo sheets measure 18 in. x 14 in.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 30, 2008

The recipe says to cut buttered sheets "lengthwise," which to me means "along the length, or longest plane." But since the recipe states that it makes 28 appetizers (out of 4 stacks of phyllo), what is actually meant is, "Cut the buttered sheets into 2-inch strips along the 14-inch side" - so that seven strips are made from each stack!
