Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C or 350°F.
  2. Grate the cheeses into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add 2 of the eggs and then blitz to a purée using a hand blender.
  4. Add the mint, nutmeg and black pepper (to taste).
  5. Mix well.
  6. Take two sheets of filo.
  7. Brush one with melted butter and then lay the other directly on top.
  8. Cut into strips about 5 x 20 cm.
  9. Put 1 tablespoon of the filling in the centre of the strip, about 2 cm from the end.
  10. Fold over one corner to form a triangle.
  11. Turn in the edges by about 5mm and then continue folding over the triangle until you reach the end of the filo strip, buttering well with each turn.
  12. Continue making pastries until you have used up all the mixture.
  13. Arrange them on a baking tray.
  14. Beat the milk with the remaining eggs and pour this liquid over the triangles.
  15. Let the tray stand at room temperature until the liquid is absorbed.
  16. Place a bit of cold butter on each triangle and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden.
