    KlynnPadilla's Note:

    Stumbled across these when searching for ZWT recipes. Sound delish! Servings is a wild guess for now; I'll update when I make them.

      I agree wth the previous poster, I prefer butter as the greasing agent. I made half with butter and half with the olive oil. The olive oil pastries ended up flaking out more than the better ones. I was able to make 15 triangles (4 layers thick) and ran out of phyllo. I still had a little bit of cheese left over. It was still good and we ended up eating all of them. Made for ZWT4 - Chic Chefs.

      Good basic recipe. I got 5 little cheese pies by scaling this down to 2 servings - one for each person in the familly. We all liked them. I must say, I do prefer butter as the greasing agent for cheese pies, but these were good, too.
