Ingredients

  • 10 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 8 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons honey, plus extra for drizzling
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 10 sheets phyllo dough, thawed
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons melted butter

Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Combine cheeses, eggs, honey, lemon zest and nutmeg in a bowl.

Lay one sheet of phyllo on a flat surface, with the long side facing you. Brush the surface with butter and top with another phyllo sheet; brush with additional butter. Cut crosswise into 5 (3-inch) strips.

Place 2 to 3 teaspoons filling in the corner of each strip. Fold the corner of phyllo over to enclose the filling and form a triangle. Continue folding the entire strip from side to side, to form a packet. Place triangles on a baking sheet and brush tops with butter. Continue with remaining ingredients.

Bake until golden, about 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, and then drizzle with honey. Serve warm.
