Ok, since I am almost dead anyway, I am going to give you all my secret family trick to spanikopita, baklava, and anything with filo dough.
Before putting in the oven
Cut the top into squares
Take 1/2 cup olive oil in a saucepan and heat until it is just starting to smoke white, before it burns black, pull off of fire.
Pour it on top of the layers of filo dough, so it crisps.
This will prevent any soggy filo dough. (which is the only major complaint I see, otherwise this is a perfect Greek recipe).
Then cook in the oven for the 40 or so minutes.
