    tigrrboxer's Note:

    Absolutely divine, irresistible delicate thin rolls of phyllo pastry, crispy on the outside and oozing with melting cheese. Incredibly "more-ish" finger food.

    1. 1
      In a mixing bowl, mash the feta cheese and mix in the chopped parsley.
    2. 2
      Divide the cheese mixture into 24 equal portions.
    3. 3
      Lay out the phyllo sheets and cut them into a total of 24 triangles (the easiest way to lay them on top of other, cut from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock, then from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock, then divide up each quarter into 4 triangles- but I'm sure experienced pizza makers have a much more scientific method!).
    4. 4
      To roll your "cigarettes", put a portion of cheese at the wide end of a triangle, then fold in the edges to seal the cheese in before rolling it all up; you can seal the very tip of your roll with a little water.
    5. 5
      When all the rolls have been assembled, deep fry them until they are golden and crispy.
    6. 6
      Serve freshly fried.

      I tried this with 3 different feta cheeses to get it right. What I found to be the best tasting cheese (and the one that was easiest to roll without breaking the pastry) was a soft smooth danish that could be mashed into a smooth texture. Also don't overfry the pastries. Fry them so they are just crispy and slightly brown/pale. This lets the cheese stand out a bit more.
