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...
If you're going for savory this would be a good bet: http://www.food52.com/recipes...

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:

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.

Two ingredients, your pastry and parmesan cheese. Really good!

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. ;)
