The one I use in this blog post! My first time and it worked like a charm.

My favorite recipe using phyllo wouuld also be my favorite Greek dessert, Galactobouriko. It features a farina-based custard and boozy syrup and is disgustingly delicious. ;)

I like to make these savory cheese straws: http://bit.ly/dINedQ
Two ingredients, your pastry and parmesan cheese. Really good!

A good simple bite to have with drinks (made either with phyllo or puff pastry): make little turnovers (triangles, like mini-spanaktopitas) filled with grated sharp white cheddar and Major Grey's Chutney - bottled is fine. Brush with an egg wash and bake on parchment.

How about a bisteeya? It's a Moroccan savory chicken pie with layers of egg and nuts. This recipe is very close to the one I usually follow:

I've made this baklava (though I admit I altered the filling somewhat) - it works really well, and is quite easy: http://www.food52.com/recipes/8969_fastest_baklava_ever
If you're going for savory this would be a good bet: http://www.food52.com/recipes/3628_spanikopita_hand_pies
