More From Southern Living


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 4 ounces feta cheese
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen phyllo pastry, thawed
  • Unsalted butter, melted


  1. Beat eggs at medium speed with an electric mixer 1 minute; beat in cheeses.
  2. Unfold phyllo, and cover with a slightly damp towel to prevent pastry from drying out.
  3. Place 1 phyllo sheet on a flat surface covered with wax paper; cut lengthwise into 3 (12- x 6-inch) strips. Brush 1 long side of each strip with melted butter; fold strips in half lengthwise, and brush with butter.
  4. Place 1 teaspoon cheese mixture at base of each strip; fold right bottom corner over to form a triangle. Continue folding back and forth into a triangle, gently pressing corners together.
  5. Place triangles, seam side down, on ungreased baking sheets, and brush with butter. Repeat procedure with remaining phyllo sheets, cheese mixture, and butter.
  6. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until golden.
  7. Note: You may freeze unbaked pastries on baking sheets; remove to airtight containers, and freeze up to 2 weeks. Bake as directed without thawing.
