1.Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan forced). Oil two oven trays, line with baking paper.
2.Combine cottage cheese, fetta, egg and herbs in a medium bowl, season with pepper.
3.Place 1 sheet of pastry on a bench or flat surface, brush with some of the oil. Top with 2 more sheets, brushing each with more oil. Cut layered sheets lengthways into 3 strips. Place 1 level tablespoon of cheese mixture at one narrow edge of each pastry strip. Fold one corner of pastry diagonally over filling to form a triangle. Continue folding to end of strip, retaining triangular shape. Repeat to make 15 triangles.
4.Place triangles, seam-side down, on trays, brush with a little more oil. Bake triangles about 15 minutes or until browned lightly.

When working with the first three sheets of pastry, cover remaining pastry with a sheet of baking paper, then a damp tea towel to prevent it from drying out.
