Cooking Instructions

1

Blend the two cheeses together until smooth. Add the almonds, Amaretto, white pepper and cherries. Mix well and chill for at least one hour, up to overnight.


2

Heat oven to 375ºF.


3

Cover the 25 sheets of fillo loosely with plastic wrap. Take out only the sheets that you are working with.


4

Place a half sheet of fillo on the work surface, brush with melted butter. Top with another half sheet of fillo, brush with butter, and repeat with one more half sheet. Put a tablespoon of cheese filling in the center. Bring up the edges of the fillo to form a purse (pouch) shaped packet. Place on a heavy baking sheet. Brush exposed surfaces with butter. Repeat to form 16 packets, placing them approximately 1" apart on the baking sheet. Bake until golden, approximately 10 minutes. Serve hot.


*Can substitute 1 tablespoon of non-alcoholic Amaretto syrup found at many coffee shops and specialty food stores.
