  • Allow fillo dough to thaw in refrigerator overnight. Bring to room temperature before using.


  • Carefully unroll fillo sheets onto a smooth, dry surface.


  • Cover fillo completely with plastic wrap, then a damp towel.


  • Keep fillo covered until needed. Do not leave uncovered for more than one minute to avoid drying out.

  • Brush each layer of fillo with melted butter, margarine or oil.


  • To prevent edges from cracking, brush edges first and then work into center.


  • Be sure to brush the last layer of fillo with melted butter.


  • Fillings should be chilled and not excessively moist.
