This can be used in place of shop bought filo pastry.
I used this recipe to make Baklava. I don't know what Baklava looks like, tastes like, and I've never cooked with Phyllo Dough either. My finished product tasted delicious though so 5 stars for the recipe!!! I can never find Phyllo Dough in the grocery store so this recipe helps out alot. ***UPDATE*** I finally cooked with phyllo dough and I must say that this is SO MUCH BETTER! I'm never going to use the packaged stuff ever again. - 11 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent. I put the dough through a noodle maker instead of strechting it by hand. Thank you very much. - 29 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This reminds me of the recipe my mom used to use when making her Macedonian cheese burek. She would use old clean sheets specifically saved for this purpose and roll out countless phyllo snakes full of tasty feta/egg mixtures. I remember 3-4 large sized pans baked on Saturday mornings. And the crispy flaky texture was amazing. Puts the store bought stuff to shame and I could never understand why anyone would use store bought. This is more versatile. - 11 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
