The key to great spinach triangles is thin pastry on the outside with lots of tangy spinach on the inside. They are offered at room temperature so you can avoid last-minute heating. You can add toasted pine nuts, golden raisins, or feta cheese to the filling to complement the tangy flavor. You can also use this filling when preparing the savory Greek pastry called spanakopita.

    The baked triangles can be frozen for several weeks. Freeze uncovered on a plastic-lined baking sheet, then transfer to an airtight container. Reheat thawed triangles at 350°F for 5 to 7 minutes.
