Spinach Cheese Triangles

1 pkg. (8oz) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained
1/3 cup. chopped drained roasted red peppers
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
6 sheets frozen phyllo, thawed
1/2 cup. (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted

   Mix cream cheese, spinach, red peppers, and garlic salt with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
   Lay 1 phyllo sheet on flat surface. Brush with some of the melted butter.
Cut lengthwise into 4 (18 x 3-1/2-inch) strips.
   Spoon about 1 Tbsp. filling about 1 inch from one end of each strip. Fold the end over the filling at a 45-degree angle. Continue folding as you would fold a flag to form a triangle that encloses filling. Repeat procedure with remaining phyllo sheets.
  Place triangles on cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter.
Bake at 375F. for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes: 3 dozens appetizers.

Tip: Unfold phyllo sheets; cover with wax paper and damp towel to prevent drying until ready to use.

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Bake Time: 15 minutes
