Phyllo Turnovers

Total Time: 20 MIN Makes: 4 turnovers
Prep Time: 10 MIN Cook Time: 10 MIN

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

  • 16 sheets Athens® Phyllo Dough (9″ x 14″), thawed
  • Cooking spray, as needed
  • 2 cups savory or sweet filling


Preheat the oven to 3751/4F. Lay a sheet of Phyllo dough on the work surface and lightly spray with cooking spray. Lay another sheet on top and spray again. Repeat with a third layer of Phyllo. Add five of the remaining Phyllo sheets without cooking spray to reduce calories and fat.
Trim the Phyllo stack to form a 7 inch by 14 inch rectangle. Cut this large rectangle in half into squares.
Place a half cup of savory or sweet filling in the center of a Phyllo square.
Fold the Phyllo in half to form a large triangle and seal the edges. Place the turnover on an ungreased baking sheet. Spray the top of the turnover. Repeat to create four turnovers.
Bake turnovers for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Serve immediately.
Tip: Sprinkle the tops of the turnovers with cheese, breadcrumbs, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar etc. depending on if the recipe is sweet or savory.
