THE PASTRY
  • 5 12-inch by 17-inch sheets of phyllo dough
  • 1 stick of butter, melted and cooled a bit

    CHEESE FILLING
  • 1 cups coarsely grated Jack or brick cheese
  • 1 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt and ground white
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese pepper to taste
  • tablespoon chopped fresh dill

  • How To Cook:
    CHEESE FILLING:
    1. Mix all ingredients well, adding cup of the Jack cheese.

    2. You will be using the remaining 1 cup of Jack cheese when you assemble the pastry. Set aside.

    3. Brush an 8-inch lined frying pan with a bit of the butter. Brush 3 of the half sheets of dough with some of the butter and place them in the bottom of the frying pan.

    4. Spread 1/3 of the filling and 1/3 cup of the grated Jack cheese over the sheets. Repeat the process twice more, ending with the remaining sheet of dough. Tuck the edges down and around.

    5. Cook over medium heat about 2 minutes, and then place in a preheated 375F oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the bottom is golden brown.

    THE PASTRY:
    1. Cut each of the phyllo sheets in half the short way across so that you have 10 sheets, 6 inches by 8 inches.
