Phyllo Purses

Total Time: 25 MIN Makes: 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 MIN Cook Time: 12 MIN

These versatile pastries with a light, flaky crust can take on a sweet or savory filling.

  • 8 sheets Athens® Phyllo Dough (9″x14″), thawed
  • Cooking spray, as needed
  • 1/4 cup or savory or sweet filling


Preheat the oven to 3501/4F. Lay one sheet of Phyllo on the work surface. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Repeat with three more sheets of Phyllo.
Trim the layered Phyllo to form a 9”x12” stack. Cut the Phyllo stack in half both vertically and horizontally to create four rectangles. Each four and a half inches by six inches.
In the center of a Phyllo rectangle, place one heaping tablespoon of savory or sweet filling.
Gather the points of the rectangle and twist slightly just above the filling to form a pouch. Place the pouch on an ungreased baking sheet. Lightly spray the pouch. Repeat to create four pouches. Next, use four more sheets of Phyllo to make a total of eight pouches.
Bake for about 12 minutes or until lightly browned and heated through. Serve immediately.
