Mummies!

These were fun to make, and fun to eat! Especially for kids! If you have never worked with Phyllo dough, it can be a challenged. Once you get used to it, however, it make DELICIOUS dishes! I really recommend that you try using it, you won't regret it when you are chowing down! TIP: It is very, very important that you let dough completely thaw before working with it. Also, ALWAYS, ALWAYS keep phyllo dough covered. This will keep it from getting dry, and it gets dry quick! I usually just work with one piece at a time and keep  a towel covering the other sheets.

From: Paula Deen

1 package phyllo dough
1 cube butter
10 slices ham
10 string cheeses
pimento or ketchup for eyes

Remove one sheets of phyllo dough from the stack, being sure to re-cover the others with a towel. Butter the sheet liberally, then top with another sheet and butter it as well. Wrap 1 string cheese in 1 piece of ham. Place the ham and cheese roll on one end of the pre-buttered phyllo dough. Roll two turns, then fold in the ends and continue to roll until closed.

Next, tear a sheet of phyllo dough into strips and wrap multiple strips around the roll. The messier the better, for these are the mummies wraps! If you are having trouble making the wraps stay, feel free to use butter to get them to sticks to the roll. Repeat 10 times.

Place on a  greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 15-2o minutes. When the mummies are cooked, used pimento or ketchup to dot eyes. Serve and be afraid...very afraid!
