Feta Squares

Yield Makes 20 appetizers

Ingredients

  • 1 pound feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 1/2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 frozen phyllo pastry sheets, thawed
  • 1/2 pound butter, melted

How to Make It

  1. Beat cheeses at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Add eggs at low speed, one at a time, until blended. Stir in dill, salt, and pepper.

  2. Cut each pastry sheet into a 13- x 9-inch rectangle. Stack 8 pastry sheets in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch pan, brushing with butter between sheets. Spread with cheese mixture; top with 4 more sheets, and brush with butter.

  3. Bake at 350° for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting into squares.

  4. NOTE: Squares may be baked, covered with foil, and frozen. Thaw at room temperature 30 minutes. Bake squares at 350° for 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
