Take simple ingredients and turn them into a marvelous dough.
Using a few ingredients, you can make your own phyllo ( or fillo of filo) dough. Then it’s just one more step to making Baklava or a tender crust for pot pie, as a base for pizza, tarts for sweet or savory appetizers, wrap for fish, or a crust for a chocolate mousse pie.
Whatever you decide to make with it, it will be delicious!
Here is the ingredient list for making the phyllo dough and also for turning it into Baklava
