    Chabear01's Note:

    These are little cheese puff triangles, this size is excellent for an appetizer, for dinner entree, use full sheet of phyllo and make larger. Tiropetes can be frozen,uncooked, layered with wax paper. They can be baked right out of the freezer. Posting for ZWT II Greece Taken from a cookbook my late DM purchased at the Sacramento Greek Festival, prepared by members of the Greek Orthodox Church here.

      These little morsels were excellent. My daughter and I made these together and we truly enjoyed the flavor. We did add a little chopped garlic to the mixture just because we had garlic on hand. Thanks Lynda for a great recipe that we truly enjoyed. I can see this at our next family gathering.
