  • Lay the phyllo roll on a cutting board and cut off a piece, 2.5 inches wide (6 cm)
    Keep the remaining phyllo under a damp towel to prevent it from drying.
  • Unroll the cut strips. Take two and lay one on top of the other, lightly brushing each one with the butter-oil mixture.
  • Put one full teaspoon of cheese filling in one corner and fold the other corner over it to form a triangle.
    Then fold the triangle over and over to itself to the end of the strip.
  • Repeat the same process with the rest of the phyllo.
    Keep the cheese pies under a damp towel to prevent them from drying.
  • Brush a baking sheet with olive oil. Arrange the triangles on the baking sheet.
    Whisk one egg and a teaspoon of water to make the egg wash.
    Brush cheese triangles with the egg wash and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.
