What's the secret to making them so pretty?

No I'm dreaming of feta in phyllo, and of trying to re-create an amazing Greek pastry I once had.

Melissa

Really pretty. Great post!

Ms. Glaze

Hey Sara, Ask your Mom why it didn't work. I'm curious to know if it's the phyllo dough or my instructions. Was it mushy or what? What filling did she put in it? (something vegetarian – I know that) I've always found phyllo dough to be really forgiving and easy to work with.

Lemme know...

I don't think I thawed the phyllo completely and olive oil doesn't work as well as butter. The filling was great, bbq tofu with marinated asparagus and mushrooms. It just didn't come out very flaky but it actually tasted great.

Those are exquisite!So often filo bites are too thick or too oily..not those

Nichelle

I love the idea of just whipping things up so quickly, but I don't think I could make them as pretty. I'd have to practice a hundred times before I threw a dinner party!

Julia

How large does philo come in, and is it possible to make larger "pies" out of them? I'd assume you would need MANY more layers, ingredients, and cooking time, but would it be possible to achieve without too much difficulty?

Ms. Glaze

Julia – That's a really good question. I don't think you could make super large juicy pies with them, but if you had a filling that was on the drier side it might work. I think Philo works better for smaller surface areas. Normally the sheets come in 12" to 24" inch sizes. Let me know how your experiment goes!!!

We have tons of such pastries in Turkey. Unfortunately, I'm a health freak and do weight training, thus can't eat things like this often :(

These are so beautiful.Do you know where I can buy Phyllo dough that doesn't have cornstarch in it-I'm allergic to corn,and afraid I don't have the patience to try and make my own dough this thin.Athenos has cornstarch and I miss Spanakopita.Heidi
