Maya LOVES Cheese Triangles. She used to get them at Papa George's before it sadly closed..... So we have to make them at home!
1-ish cup cottage cheese
1/2 brick of Feta crumbled
1 sweet onion finely chopped
1 T olive oil
spinach - thawed and squeezed of liquid
Phyllo dough - thawed
Preheat oven to 350.
Gently saute the onions in the oil until transluscent. Cool. Add in cheeses and egg and spinach, pepper to taste.
cut phyllo into quarters - I use a pizza cutter.
Place a scant 1 T filling in the end of a quarter of two phyllo dough layers. Fold into a triangle. Place on cookie sheet. When the cookie sheet is full, brush with butter. Maya started making the triangles when she was barely 7 and I was sorry I didn't let her try before then. She is way better at it than I!
Bake for 15 minutes - watching carefully after 10 minutes. Serve hot or warm. This recipe made 2 cookie sheets full and the kids and I ate almost all of them almost immediately. No one said a word about EATING SPINACH!
