This is a really fast and easy dessert to make. Have you had baklava? Well, this is pretty much the same but with a sweet cheese filling, its so fabulous.

1 cup myzithra cheese or any other soft cheese ( I use LaVache Quirit )
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon, ground
6 sheets fillo dough, cut in half
4 tablespoons butter, melted

1. In a large bowl add cheese, egg, sugar and cinnamon, mix well. Preheat oven to 350 F. In an 8x8 baking pan add 3 sheets of the fillo, buttering the top of each with a brush. Pour cheese mix over top 3, continue to layer the next 3 making sure to butter top of each sheet.

2. Bake pastry for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Pour sugar syrup atop pastry, you find the recipe for syrup here.

Yields: 8 servings

And what is a pastry without some Turkish coffee?
