tsp cheese and fold the upper half over lower half. Finally brush the top
with the egg-whit mixture and sprinkle with 1 tsp. cheese. Cut into ten

spatula, transfer the strips to the prepared baking sheet, placing them
about 1/2 inch apart. repeat the procedure with the remaining 5 sheets of
phyllo, egg-whites and cheese. Bake the straws for 8 to 10 minutes, or
until golden and crisp. Transfer to a rack to cool. Makes 5 dozen straws.
