Impress your guests with these starters using Athens® or Apollo fillo dough.
12 sheets Athens® Fillo Dough (9” x 14”), thawed
Cooking spray, as needed
3 cups savory or sweet filling
Preheat the oven to three hundred fifty degrees. Lay a sheet of fillo dough on a work surface. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Repeat with five more sheets of fillo.
Spread one and a half cups of savory or sweet filling along the bottom 2 inches of the long side of the fillo.
Roll the fillo up over the filling to form a roll. Continue to roll to the end of the fillo strip. Spray the outside of the cigar and place seam-side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Score the cigar in half. Repeat with the remaining fillo and filling to create two long cigars.
Bake cigars for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove and let set for 5 minutes.
Cut each cigar in half. Serve immediately.
