Take one strip of filo at a time, using a Pastry Brush carefully brush the melted butter over the pastry, then place 1 or 2 teaspoons of filling on the pastry at one end.
Taking one corner, fold it over diagonally to create a triangle shape. Keep folding it back and forth, diagonally along the strip. You will find the filling has become enclosed in a triangle shaped envelope.
Place the cheese pie on the baking tray with the loose end underneath. Repeat for all other pies.
Brush the tops of the pies with the melted butter.
Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until light golden - 180 C, 350 F, gas 4.
Serve warm or at room temperature. Serve as part of a meze with a drink!
Another very simple method is to use puff pastry.
I often use the shop bought frozen sheets of pastry as it is much easier, but you can make your own puff pastry.
You will need 5 -6 sheets of pastry.
Cut each sheet into 6 portions, place 1 or 2 teaspoons of cheese filling on each piece.
Brush with water around the edges of the pastry, then fold the pastry over the filling to create a bit of a square. Pinch the sides together and then place on a baking tray.
Brush the pastry with milk and bake as above.
Both versions are delicious and are great to serve as party food.
