    Tia Mouse's Note:

    DOES NOT INCLUDE 4-10 HOURS OF REST TIME! This is a recipe that can't go wrong. BTW if you haven't used filo before, just follow the box instructions. Don't be intimidated (MOM!:-D) by it. It's easy to use. I've made this a bunch of times and it never comes out wrong. The longer you can let it sit before serving the better. (DH thinks it's better the next morning!)
