Cut puff pastry sheet into 3 or 4 portions.Take a portion and roll it out a bit to get a rectangle with the shortest side near you.Place a small scoop of filling on the bottom part or the.Fold over the pastry to close the filling within.Press around the filling with wet hands to press out air and close in the filling.Take the bottom right corner of this with your hands and fold over the filling to the left upper side to make a triangle.Then take the bottom left corner of the trinagle and fold it over to the right upper corner to form another triangle.Continue like this till you reach the top and then tuck in whatever remaining portions are there.Place this on a greased baking sheet.Do so with all the puff pastry pieces.Bake in a preheated oven at 400F for 10-12 minutes.Serve with your choice of dip/sauce as snacks or appetizers.
The process of folding the spanakopita is from food network.Even for a samosa,I can never get a perfect triangle,so I used the method from FoodNetwork.But I can see various different ways-you can simply cover it up as rectangles or triangles or even make a big spinach pie.Authentic spanakopita recipes can be found in dear Ivy's Blog.
