From EatingWell:  December 1997, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Reminiscent of the ever-popular cheese straws, these savory, flaky cheese bites are a guaranteed hit for any occasion.

28 triangles | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. Stir together oil, mustard, salt and cayenne in a small bowl.
  3. Lay 1 sheet of phyllo on a work surface. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp kitchen towel.) Dampen a pastry brush with water and use it to brush the phyllo lightly with the oil mixture. Sprinkle with about 1 1/2 tablespoons Parmesan. Lay another sheet of phyllo on top. Lightly brush with more oil mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan. Repeat with the remaining phyllo, oil mixture and Parmesan.
  4. Cut the phyllo stack crosswise into 4 strips. Cut each strip into 7 triangles. Transfer the triangles to the prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake the triangles, 1 sheet at a time, for 6 to 10 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
