Phyllo Cheese Triangles
Reminiscent of the ever-popular cheese straws, these savory, flaky cheese bites are a guaranteed hit for any occasion.
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 4 sheets phyllo dough, (14x18 inches), thawed (see Tip)
- 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
- Stir together oil, mustard, salt and cayenne in a small bowl.
- 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.
- Cut the phyllo stack crosswise into 4 strips. Cut each strip into 7 triangles. Transfer the triangles to the prepared baking sheets.
- 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.
Tips & Notes
- Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 4. Freeze in a single layer, then stack in a container and cover tightly. Store the unbaked triangles in the freezer for up to 2 months. Do not thaw before baking.
- Tip: Thaw frozen phyllo dough, in its original wrapper, overnight in the refrigerator. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours before using.
