Denmar Danish White Cheese & Zucchini Phyllo Pita

1 lb Denmar Danish White Cheese
2 eggs
2 small/medium zucchinis grated and drained
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup oil mixed with 5tbsp hot (not too hot) water

Also need:
egg wash (1 egg 2 tbsp water)

Preheat oven to 450 F. Crumble two Danish White Cheese blocks with a fork until resembles crumbled feta. Scramble two eggs and mix in with the cheese. Add salt and zucchini.

Mix water and oil in a small bowl, this will be phyllo wash. Oil bottom of the pan, place one sheet of phyllo with excess edges going over. Sprinkle generously but don't over soak with oil/water mixture, then place another phyllo sheet over, sprinkle again, and spread a layer of the filling. Repeat until you have 3 layers of cheese zucchini filling, and then top it with another two layers of phyllo sheets. Cut away the excess edges, and tuck the edges in nicely.

Ideally this would be better with homemade phyllo, but sometimes you just don't have the time :)
Oil the top lightly but evenly, especially the edges. With a sharp knife cut into squares and bake until golden brown. It will rise a little. At the very end brush with egg wash and bake another 3-5 minutes. Take out of the oven, cover lightly and let it set for 5-10 minutes before serving.
