    Heat oven to 400ºF. Grease cookie sheet. Crumble cheese into small bowl; mash with fork. Stir in eggs, basil and white pepper until well mixed.
  • 2
    Cut phyllo sheets lengthwise into 2-inch strips. Cover with plastic wrap, then with damp towel to keep them from drying out. Place 1 level teaspoon cheese mixture on end of 1 strip. Fold strip over cheese mixture, end over end in triangular shape, to opposite end. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining strips and cheese mixture. Brush triangles lightly with margarine.
  • 3

Expert Tips

  • Finely shredded Monterey Jack cheese can be used for the feta cheese.
  • Cover and refrigerate unbaked triangles up to 24 hours before baking; bake as directed. Or freeze tightly covered up to 2 months; increase bake time by 5 minutes.
