I enthralled with spanakopita, and this was a quick and easy way to make it. I have used this for teacher get-togethers and family events. It is great with a glass of white wine. —Ryan Palmer, Windham, Maine

"OMG...so good!!! I have always loved spanakopita, but working with phyllo dough intimidated me! Puff pastry is so much easier. I made these for a get together recently, and everyone loved them. Will be making them for all of my holiday get together this year!!!"
