How to use filo pastry

loading...

Watch the Good Food cookery team show you how to get the best out of filo pastry, a crisp, paper-thin pastry that's great for sweet and savoury dishes.

Points to remember

  • Melt the butter.
  • Unroll the filo pastry pack. Remove sheets as you need them, keeping unused sheets covered with cling film or a damp tea towel.
  • Brush each sheet with melted butter and layer up according to the recipe. Layering several sheets of pastry will make your finished dish sturdier.
  • Use for making samosas, parcels, streusels and lining tart tins.
  • Try this technique with our favourite filo pastry recipes.
