Homemade Filo Stuffed with Cheese (Toula M)

Homemade Filo Stuffed with Cheese

These homemade filo triangles filled with cheese are so scrumptious that I don't know if I'll ever be able to enjoy store boughten filo again.

I'm not saying I'll never use store boughten filo.  - This is a staple in my freezer.  The homemade version was just such a special treat.  So flakey with a flavour that is out of this world.  I only wish my aunt owned a bakery - This is a must try for everyone!

Thanks for the lovely experience Aunt Toula!  Your Tiropitakia were delicious!
