 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  pounds        Feta cheese
    5      tablespoons   Butter
    8      tablespoons   Flour
    2      cups          Milk -- scalded
                         Salt & pepper to taste
    7                    Eggs -- lightly beaten
      3/4  pound         Phyllo pastry
                         Butter for brushing pastry
 Crumble cheese into very small pcs.  Melt butter in small pot. Add flour, blend
well.  Slowly add scalded milk, stirring constantly to make a smooth bechamel
sauce. Add a little salt & pepper. Remove from heat and stir until cool.  Add
crumbled cheese and mix well. Add eggs and mix again.
   Butter a pan abt. 2 inches smaller than the phyllo sheets. Use a little more
 than hale of the phyllo sheets to make th b9ottom layer of the pie. Brush each
 with melted butter and place it in the pan letting the edges hang over the pan. 
 Pour in the cheese-egg mixture, spreating evenly. Cover mixture with the phyllo
 that extended beyond pan. Theis will prevent mixture from leaking out. 
 Carefully cut remaining phyllo to fit pan. Brush each sheet with butter before
 placing on pitta. Brush top with butter and sprinkle with a little water. Score
 into strips to make cutting the pie easier after it is baked.	Bake in a
 preheated 300 F. oven for 45 min. Cut into pcs. and serve hot.
