I got my whole wheat pastry dough from an amazing greek store. But if you feel adventurous try and make you own.

::Spinach & Mozzarella Bites::

1 pound filo dough *

500 gr. spinach (previously cooked and cooled)

250 gr. mozzarella cheese, in cubes

1 stick butter, unsalted and melted

1 large egg, beaten

It’s really important to use all-butter puff pastry for this recipe.

Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet, set aside.

Unfold or unroll three sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Divide in three columns and brush with butter.

Any filo pastry that doesn’t boast about its all-butterness is made of weirdo fats that just aren’t cool.

Place spinach and cheese in the center of each column and gently fold about 1/2-inch of the edges over, creating a perfect triangle. As you fold in, make sure all side are close so the filling doesn’t come out.

Repeat this process until you use all the dough and brush with egg wash from edge to edge.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.  Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.  Serve warm.

* Make sure to take out of freezer at least 5 hours before use. Cover with a damp towel, that way you prevent it to brake.
