How to work with Phyllo pastry

A step-by-step guide on how to use phyllo


Phyllo pastry


Phyllo pastry is very delicate and dries out easily. Follow these tips for recipe success.

Step 1 Prepare the filling before you start. Cover the phyllo with baking paper then a damp tea towel. This prevents the phyllo from drying out.


Step 2 Brush the sheets with melted butter or olive oil and layer a few on top of each other. This makes the pastry flaky.


Step 3 Cut strips of the pastry to the desired width and place a little filling on the end. Fold in the edges and roll up. Secure the end by brushing with butter.
