Knishes in phyllo dough

Yield: 32 Servings

Measure Ingredient
16 Phyllo leaves
½ pounds (2 sticks) butter; melted
2 cups Mashed potatoes with scallions; (**recipe follows)

And one more from the cook book "A Passion for Potatoes" by Lydie Marshall.

Each phyllo leaf will yield two 2- by 3-inch knishes. Lightly brush 1 phyllo leaf with melted butter and fold it in quarters, lightly brushing with butter after each fold. Fold again in quarters, brushing with butter after you fold. (You will need about 1 tablespoon melted butter for each leaf.) Cut the folded leaf in half, mound 1 tablespoon mashed potatoes near one end, butter the edges, and fold the other end over the filling, pinching the edges to seal. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. bake for 20 minutes, turning once. Serve warm with drinks.

** Mash 2 cups of potatoes, mix with about 1 cup of thinly sliced scallions, add salt and pepper. Set aside to cool.

*** Roll out 1 phyllo sheet at a time, using a damp towel to cover the others to prevent them from drying out. Work fast, a phyllo leaf dries out quickly and cracks easily.
