Phyllo Phrenzy

April 6th, 2008 at 01:20 pm

For some reason, when we got back from a morning event at our temple, I decided to tackle the pack of phyllo dough that's been sitting in the fridge since I bought it a couple of weeks ago.

I thawed a pack of frozen spinach and mixed it with a container of feta cheese and made a batch of spinach and feta puffs.

Then, I asked DD what she might like because she doesn't care for those. She said she would like mushroom and green pepper ones. So I chopped up some baby bellas and green pepper, added some blended pizza cheese and some garlic and oregano and did a batch of those.

Finally, I had told DD a while ago that I'd make dessert phyllos some time. So DW chopped up an apple and I mixed in brown sugar, flour, oatmeal and butter, seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg, and made a batch of those.

They're all chilling in the freezer now. We'll make dinner in a little while - cook up some pasta and have the spinach and mushroom puffs on the side and the apple ones for dessert. The rest will stay in the freezer for quick snacks, sides and lunches for a while.

    The dessert phyllos sound fantastic! I'll have to try that out sometime.

    It's actually the first time I've made them. I'll post later about how they turned out. The mix smelled really good.

    I just love the "chew" of pastries made with phyllo.

    Never heard of it... but it sounds delicious... What time's dinner? And are you on Mapquest? =D

    I've only tried making phyllo one time, and it was so stressful! I finally got a few to turn out, but I had a hard time doing it before it dried out and started flaking off. Maybe I will try the dessert ones sometime...

    Kudos to you for being able to make all that!

    Dinner was yummy. I made some pasta with DW's homemade sauce and served the phyllo things on the side.

    The apple ones came out very good.

    By the way, I did not make the phyllo - that was store-bought. I did prep, cut and fill the sheets.
