These are fantastic and not as scary (using the phyllo) as one might think. They make a very elegant appetizer; not to mention tasty. From Kraft.

First let me say that I rarely follow a recipe as written. I made a filling of crab, cream cheese, garlic and sharp cheddar to fill mine. I also used double sheet of phyllo. They're GREAT! They were the first to disappear at our July 4th party.

The recipe turned out better than expected however I did add two small cloves of garlic, and used fresh red bell pepper (cubed). Since this was my first time using phyllo I was dissappointed that there were not better instructions on how to wrap the darn things. Unfortunatley, I had pictured creating individual wraps and so as I began spooning little mounds onto the dough I was quite confused as to where the triangle should form. 15 lopsided, square, round, and oblong shapes later...they still tasted good :) As for the aesthetics...next time, I'm watching video!
