    this appeals to me way to much to be outside of the dessert category… :)

    Lori, you must be a lefty…usually we (Greeks) fold the triangles from bottom-up but the same thing right?

    The “trigona” or triangles look fab and your filling is certainly original. Surely all gone!

    Menehune- I suppose I didn’t convey how much I liked these, did I? On my site I blog about the best of the recipes I find… so you can bet that I love everything I feature. These were no exception- delicious in every way! I served them at a big party & they were gone from the tray quicker than I could bake them.

    This is one of my favorite Greek phyllo triangle but with a twist in the recipe…mint and sun dried tomato will result in a even better delight, yum yum :)

    Happy and Sweet New Year 2010 to You Lori!!

    Cheers,

    Gera

    Lori, these look amazing. I just love traditional spanikopita, so this twist is bound to be a hit. However, I wonder how far ahead they could be made. Have you ever tried freezing them after assembling? How would be the best method?

    Lori Lange — May 15, 2011 @ 8:39 AM

    I would imagine that freezing them would be okay, but since I haven’t tried it- I’d test it out to be sure!
