Now I know you're probably saying "Those don't look like triangles".....and you would be correct!
I did start to make triangles, and I actually made three. I started with 6 layers of phyllo dough, cut it into strips and put a small amount of filling at one end. I tried to fold the phyllo into triangles (like folding an American flag) but first I had to remove some filling, and I still couldn't get it to fold properly. Sorry, I should have taken pictures to demonstrate my failed attempts. I decided to bake the three that I made because the corners weren't sealing and I was afraid the filling would just run out. They baked up fine. The filling set OK and the phyllo dough was light and flaky.
The problem? The ratio of filling to phyllo, not enough filling. I could have tried less layers of phyllo but I decided this would take some playing around with, so I ran to the store and purchased the already made phyllo cups to add my filling to. That's how I ended up with what you see here.
I'll have to work on perfecting the triangles and I'll be sure to let you know what works best!
