  • Gently tuck the over hanging edges down the sides.
  • Cut the sheet into 12 squares using a sharp knife. Cut each square across the middle on the diagonal to form 24 triangles
  • Brush any remaining butter/olive oil mixtures on the cut seams.

    I ordered something like this once at The "Pegasus Taverna" in Detroit's Greektown. It was delicious. I wish I could make it as good as that.
