 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6                    Eggs -- separated
    1       lb           Feta cheese -- crumbled
   12       oz           Cottage cheese
      1/4   c            Blue cheese -- crumbled (opt.)
   16       oz           Filo pastry sheets
    2       c            Butter -- melted
 
   Beat egg whites until stiff; add yolks and continue
   beating until well blended.  Add cheese and mix well.
   
   Cut pastry sheets into quarters or into 8x6-inch
   pieces.  Brush pastry with hot melted butter.  Place a
   teaspoon of cheese mixture in bottom center of pastry
   strip, folding over one-third on each side and
   brushing again with butter; roll like a jellyroll.
   Place on cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 20
   minutes.
   
   Note: Tiropetes can be frozen before baking.  Do not
   thaw; bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
