Poppy Seed Filling

• 1 cup poppy seeds
1/4 cup almonds, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup sugar
•  1/4 cup raisins
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/2 cup sour cream
• 1 egg

1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix.

Phyllo Triangles

• 6 large sheets whole wheat or white phyllo dough, thawed
• 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar mixed with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on your work surface, brush with melted butter, and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon sugar. Butter, sprinkle, and stack two more sheets on top of the first one. Cut the stack crosswise into six strips.

2. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling near one end of each strip. Fold the corner of the strip across the filling, and con­tinue folding like a flag to form a triangle. Place the triangles on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough and filling.

3. Bake the triangles 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a rack covered with paper towels.
