Using Leftover Phyllo Dough
I used to be scared of phyllo dough. Until last weekend when a friend of mine made spanikopita for a party and I decided to try to make spanikopita myself. I would have probably blogged that recipe, too, if it hadn't been for the fact that (a) I took no pictures and (b) I've decided since then I prefer the handy cute pastry triangles in lieu of the big casserole. The wonderful thing about making savory pastries is that you can really throw in whatever leftovers you've got and make something pretty tasty. Blue Cheese Butternut Squash Pastries are deceptively fancy and tasty.... just the thing for a party to make people think you spent hours and hours in the kitchen, when, in fact, it took about 15 minutes of prep time and 30 minutes in the oven.
