DIRECTIONS

  • Beat eggs until foamy.
  • Add sifted flour and salt.
  • Beat well.
  • Add sour cream and mix well.
  • Add cheese and fold thoroughly.
  • Grease a 13x9x2 inch pan.
  • Place 2 sheets of phyllo in pan.
  • Pour about 2 tablespoons melted butter over dough and brush to edges.
  • Spread about 6 large spoons of cheese mixture on top.
  • Repeat the dough and butter and continue to layer with cheese mixture until 2 sheets of phyllo are left.
  • Add last two sheets on top and pour remaining butter over dough.
  • Bake uncovered in 325 degree oven for one hour.
  • It will get puffy and golden brown, but will reduce down when it cools. (I test for doneness by shaking the pan a bit; if the cheese doesn't move; it's done. If it's getting too dark and the cheese is still jiggly, cover with foil and continue to bake).
  • Cut into squares and serve warm.
