  • Mix cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, feta cheese, garlic, and milk together in a bowl; add onion and cilantro. Stir to combine.

  • Cut one sheet of spring roll wrapper into 3 rectangles, each about 4x12 inches. Lightly brush with melted butter. Place a heaping teaspoon of filling on the 4-inch end of the rectangle. Fold the end over the filling; pick up a corner and fold diagonally, making a triangle. Continue to fold diagonally, making a triangular packet, so the the filling doesn't come out the ends. Dab a little water on the end of the strip and seal the sambusa closed. Repeat with remaining filling and spring roll wrappers. Place on prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crisp and golden, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Traditionally, sambusa is deep-fried. Instead of baking, you can alternatively cook in hot oil, several at a time, until golden and bubbly. Remove and drain on a paper towel.
