Makes 12 rolls:
6 sheets phyllo pastry (#4), thawed and at room temperature
8 ounces feta cheese
5 tablespoons salted butter, melted
Optional fillings: jam, nuts, and/or dried fruit
Preheat the oven to 400 °F, 200 °C.
Notes on working with phyllo pastry:
Slice the feta cheese into ½ inch thick sticks.
Place the phyllo sheets onto a clean work surface and cut them in half lengthwise. Stack them on top of each other.
Drizzle some butter over the phyllo and place a feta stick on the bottom portion of the phyllo. Fold the sides over the feta and roll upwards.
Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Continue filling the phyllo strips with feta and any of your favorite fillings.
Some good flavor combinations are:
Brush with the remaining melted butter and bake on the center rack of the oven for 15 minutes.
Set aside and allow to cool slightly. About 10 minutes.
Serve with Greek honey.
