Basil Cheese Triangles

1 pound shredded Monterey jack cheese
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup basil leaves, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
16 ounces phyllo dough, thawed
1/3 cup butter

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet.

Crumble Feta cheese into small bowl; mash with fork. Stir in eggs, basil and white pepper until well mixed.

Cut a stack of phyllo sheets lengthwise into 2-inch strips. Cover with plastic wrap, then with damp towel to prevent them from drying out.

Place 1 level teaspoon cheese mixture on end of 1 strip; fold phyllo strip end over end, in triangular shape, to opposite end. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining strips and cheese mixture. Brush butter over triangles.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serve warm.

Makes 6 dozen (72).
