1 cup cottage cheese
3 ounces feta cheese
1 egg
2 tablespoons each finely chopped fresh oregano and flat-leaf parsley
15 sheets frozen phyllo pastry, thawed
1/4 cup olive oil

1.  Preheat oven to 425*F (400*F convection).  Oil baking sheets; line with parchment paper.

2.  Combine cheeses, egg and herbs in medium bowl; season with pepper.

3.  Brush 1 sheet of pastry with some of the oil; top with 2 more sheets, brushing each with more oil.  Cut layered sheets into 3 striips lengthways.  Place 1 level tablespoon of cheese mixture at one narrow edge of each pastry strip.  Fold one corner of pastry diagonally over filling to form a triangle.  Continue folding to end of strip, retaining triangular shape.  Repeat to make 15 triangles in total.

4.  Place triangles, seam-side down, on baking sheets; brush with a little more oil.  Bake triangles about 15 minutes or until browned lightly.

tip  When working with the first three sheets of pastry, cover remaining pastry with a sheet of parchment paper then a damp tea towel to prevent it from drying out.
