1.Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease 2 large oven trays.
2.In a bowl, mash together feta, parmesan, mint, egg and zest until combined. Season to taste.
3.Layer 2 filo sheets, brushing each with butter. Working with the longest side facing you, cut stack into 6 strips (keep remaining pastry covered with a clean tea towel to prevent drying out).
4.Spoon 2 teaspoons cheese mixture into one corner of each strip. Fold one corner of pastry diagonally across filling to other edge to form a triangle. Continue folding to end of strip, retaining triangle shape. Place on tray and brush with butter.
5.Repeat with remaining pastry and cheese mixture. Bake for 10-15 minutes until crisp and golden. Serve hot, straight from the oven.

We used fresh filo but if using frozen filo pastry, remove pastry from freezer 1-2 hours before using to thaw completely. Re-wrap well in plastic wrap and freeze any left-overs – do not refreeze more than once.
