Just finished making the herb and cheese pie from the Jerusalem cookbook. I had exactly 12 pieces of phyllo left and I cup of ricotta. Used my leftovers to make these. Added a. Little lemon zest and used regular melted butter to brush each phyllo sheet. So yummy! Thanks for the recipe! Perfect!

What a clever idea! Sort of like a crepe, sort of like a cannoli!
