How To Work With Phyllo Dough

To work with delicate phyllo dough, remember just a few pointers and you’ll be on your way to becoming a pro. Just thaw the phyllo dough according to the package directions. Before unwrapping a roll of dough, always make sure you have all other ingredients assembled. Our Spinach & Feta Phyllo Triangles recipe* is a great way to try your hand at some phyllo dough fun.

  1. Carefully unroll the phyllo dough vertically onto your cutting board. To easily cut each sheet into equal-sized strips, with a ruler, mark the stack of dough vertically at 3-inch intervals.
  2. While keeping the remaining strips covered with a damp towel, lightly brush 1 strip of dough with melted butter. The butter will help the first strip to adhere to the second strip placed on top.
  3. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of the spinach mixture onto the bottom corner of the 2-layered strip of dough. To form a triangle, fold the phyllo dough diagonally like a flag over the filling.
