I have been using this recipe for many, many years. It comes from Jeff Smith's "The Frugal Gourmet" cookbook. Be sure to keep the philo dough moist by covering with a damp towel until you're ready to use. I add a couple dashes garlic powder to the cheese mixture. Freshly grated nutmeg really enhances the flavor as well. It is salty because of the feta cheese, so get low salt cottage cheese if available.
We loved this! My first few folding attempts were flops (no pun intended), but the last few looked pretty good. They flavors were spot on, really loved the addition of the nutmeg. We will definitely be making these again! Made for Culinary Quest 2016.
