1/2 CUP GRATED PARMESAN CHEESE
2 TSP CHILI POWDER
1/2 TSP GROUND CUMIN
3 PIECES THE FILLO FACTORY FILLO DOUGH, OR OTHER BRAND, 12" X 17" SHEETS, AT

INSTRUCTIONS
1. PREHEAT OVEN TO 400° F; SPRAY A LARGE NONSTICK BAKING SHEET WITH
NONSTICK COOKING SPRAY.

SHEETS OF PHYLLO ON A WORK SURFACE AND COVER THEM WITH A DAMP TOWEL. REMOVE
THE FIRST SHEET AND PLACE IT WITH SHORT SIDE TOWARD YOU. COAT WITH NONSTICK
COOKING SPRAY (BUTTER FLAVORED IS NICE), THEN SPRINKLE WITH ABOUT 2
TEASPOONS OF THE CHEESE MIXTURE; FOLD THE PHYLLO IN HALF TO FORM A 12 X
8-1/2 INCH RECTANGLE SPRAY THE PHYLLO AGAIN AND SPRINKLE WITH 2 MORE
TEASPOONS OF CHEESE MIXTURE; FOLD IN HALF AGAIN TO FORM A 6 X 4-1/4 INCH
RECTANGLE. SPRAY AGAIN AND SPRINKLE WITH JUST A BIT OF THE CHEESE MIXTURE;
WITH A SERRATED KNIFE, CUT INTO 8 SHORT STRIPS. TRANSFER THE STRIPS TO THE
BAKING SHEET, PLACING THEM ABOUT 1/2 INCH APART. REPEAT THE PROCESS TWO MORE
TIMES TO MAKE 24 CHEESE STRAWS (3 PER SERVING). BAKE UNTIL THE CHEESE STRAWS
ARE CRISP AND GOLDEN, 8-10 MINUTES. COOL ON WIRE RACKS.
