Spanakopita

During this busy time, I managed to find a night with some friends to make spanakopitas! This was my first time working with phyllo pastry. Here is the recipe we used:

1 pkg Phyllo pastry
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach
Goat's Milk Feta
Cream Cheese
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 clove garlic
Melted butter
 Take 2 sheets of phyllo pastry and lay on top of each other. 
Brush melted butter between the two sheets.
 Cut phyllo sheets into 4 strips. Combine spinach, cheese, and pine nuts in a food processor. 
Place a dollop (approx. 1 tbsp.) of mixture at one end of a phyllo strip.
 Fold phyllo strip in triangles all the way to the end.
 Brush end flap of phyllo pastry with melted butter.
Set triangles on wax paper and freeze. Later transfer to a ziploc baggie.
Bake in 375F oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.

Can't wait to bust these yummy appies out over the holidays!
