Cheese Pie


1/4 lb. feta cheese
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 egg
1 tbsp. fresh parsley (1/2 tsp. dried)
pepper to taste
filo pastry sheets
1/4 cup butter



~I find a Quisinart works best for this.

Put the cheeses, pepper, parsley and egg in the food processor and mix until blended. About 10-15 seconds. Not long.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

When using filo dough the sheets you aren't working with at the moment need to be kept covered, so they don't dry out. (plastic wrap works well for this) Put 2 filo sheets on a cutting board and brush butter over the surface of the top one. Slice the sheets in half lengthwise. Drop 1 tbsp. of cheese mixture in one corner of the dough strip. Fold corner of dough over the filling. Turn triangle over and over to the end of the strip. Put on cookie sheet and brush top with butter. Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes or until crisp and brown.

~I love feta so always add a bit extra.

~This is wonderful with Dolmades me Avgolemono (stuffed grape leaves)
