    1      c             milk -- scalded
    3      tbsp          butter
    4      tbsp          flour
                         salt and pepper -- to taste
      3/4  lb            feta cheese
    4                    eggs -- beaten lightly
    2      tsp           dill -- chopped
      3/4  lb            phyllo dough
                         butter for brushing phyllo
 Melt the 3 tbsp butter, add the flour and stir well to blend.  Slowly add the h
 ot milk, stirring constantly to make a thick, creamy sauce.  Remove from the he
 at.  Add the salt and pepper, and continue to stir the sauce until it is cool. 
  Crumble the cheese into small pieces and add them to the sauce.  Add the eggs;
  stir well, then add the dill, and mix until well blended.  
 Cut each of the sheets of phyllo lengthwise into 3 strips.  Take 1 strip at a t
 ime (keep the others covered to prevent their drying out).  Holding the strip h
 orizontally, brush it with the melted butter.  Put a teaspoonful of the filling
  in the lower left corner, then fold over to make a triangle along the strip.  
 Fold the upper left corner over to close the triangle.  Continue  to fold the p
 hyllo over and over until the strip has become a small (about 3-inch) triangle 
 of pastry.  Brush the top with butter.  continue to prepaer all of the pittas l
 ike this.  Place the triangles on a lightly buttered baking dish and bake in a 
 preheated 300 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.  Serve hot.
