    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    Another recipe I clipped from a magazine that featured a Greek Gourmet Dinner Party menu and recipes. I've had this for years, since I first served this in 1981! Instead of the more familiar triangular pastries, these are rolled up jelly-roll fashion to make them easier to serve as finger food. These can be made ahead and frozen until needed.
