Often people light up cigars to celebrate special events, such as a birth, a victory or a business success. When somebody just misses their target or goal, we say, “Close, but no cigar!” Well, after you have completed cooking this scrumptious culinary creation, you will have eight victory cigars. Just don’t light ‘em up! Eat and enjoy!
Golden Flakey Cigars
Prep time: 20 minutes • Cook time: 20 minutes • Yields 1 cigar
Filling 1 (per cigar):
1 Tbsp Feta cheese
4 Calamata olives
1 sm. Sprig of Fresh dill
Filling 2 (per cigar):
2 tsp Sundried tomatoes sliced thin
1 slice Fresh mozzarella
2 Basil leaves
Wet two sheets of paper towels and wring them out so that you have damp towels. Open package of fillo dough, unroll the stack of sheets, and cover with damp towels to prevent them from drying out and cracking.
Carefully remove one sheet of fillo dough. Brush half the sheet (the long way) with butter and then fold so that there is a long strip.
Take the ingredients from one of the fillings listed above. (Note: The above are two suggested fillings. You can be creative and come up with a filling on your own.)
Place ingredients about 2” off one end. Roll all the way (moderately tight) and place on baking sheet.
Repeat process to fill many desired cigars. After rolling all the cigars brush the tops with butter and bake at 325 º for about 20 minutes, or until golden in color.
