I loved the savory mushroom filling, and the contrast with the crispy exterior. I made the recipe as written, and brought it to a New Year's Eve party. I would make these again for a special occasion - too time consuming for every day!
Curried Mushroom Turnovers
Layers of phyllo crust help the savory filling in these turnovers stay hot longer than most appetizer fillings would--so you can save the warming tray for another appetizer.

Combine flour and next 4 ingredients; add to mushroom mixture in skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in yogurt and cilantro.
- Cut 1 phyllo sheet in half lengthwise (keeping remaining phyllo sheets covered). Lightly coat phyllo halves with cooking spray, and fold halves in half lengthwise to form strips. Working with 1 strip at a time, spoon 1 tablespoon mushroom mixture onto base of strip. Fold right bottom corner over mixture to form a triangle; keep folding back and forth into a triangle to end of strip. Repeat entire procedure with remaining phyllo sheets and mushroom mixture.
