I love phyllo dough, but it is such a pain to work with....That said, these are very tasty! I reduced the recipe to make 6 grissini, and used s tomato based sauce for dipping, which was perfect! I always see so much butter left on the pan after cooking, but I know they wouldn't be near as good or flaky, without all that butter, puffing the pastry as it heats up. I will make these again, next time I commit myself to a box of phyllo dough, and include them in an appy 'spread.' Thanks for sharing, **Mandy**!
