    diamonds4heather's Note:

    The buttery and flakey phyllo is a great compliment to the cheese filling. Use more ricotta if feta is too bold of a taste. This is the way my mom makes it. Recipe taken from "The Complete Book of Greek Cooking, The Recipe Club of St. Pauls Greek Cathedral".

      This is very close to my Grandma's recipe. She called it Pita, and instead of Feta cheese, she used large curd cottage cheese. It makes it easier for the little ones to enjoy it. If you are really daring, you can also use the same filling and roll them into triangles, but eating the cut squares is just fine!
