HOW TO MAKE PHYLLO ROUND OR PHYLLO WRAPPED SHAPES

 

HOW TO MAKE PHYLLO WRAPPED AROUND SMALL CHEESE WHEELS:

Thaw one roll of fillo dough, following thawing instructions on package.

 

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

 

Unroll and cover the fillo pastry sheets with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying out.

 

Place one sheet of fillo on work surface and lightly coat with cooking spray. Layer and repeat with 3 more sheets but do not spray the top layer. (Recipe or personal preference may substitute brushing with melted butter, olive oil or egg wash.) Repeat above step to make a second set.

 

Place cheese wheel in the middle of one set of layered fillo. Place second layered fillo set over the cheese wheel in the same direction as the bottom set.  Mold the top fillo set around the cheese. Cut the fillo leaving a 1½” border around the cheese wheel; a pizza cutter works well.

 

Starting with the closest fillo edge, begin to tightly roll the fillo up to the cheese. Continue rolling the fillo until you have reached the starting point creating a ring around the cheese wheel. Trim any excess fillo and tuck into the beginning rolled section of fillo. Lightly brush outside of phyllo cheese wheel with egg wash and place on ungreased baking sheet.

 

Reroll unused fillo sheets and follow storing instructions on package.

 

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until fillo is golden brown. Cool for 15-20 minutes prior to serving your phyllo wrapped cheese.

 

 

 

HOW TO MAKE PHYLLO WRAPPED AROUND APPLES & PEARS:

Thaw one roll of fillo dough, following thawing instructions on package.

 

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

 

Unroll and cover the fillo pastry sheets with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying out. Place one sheet of fillo on work surface and lightly coat with cooking spray. Layer and repeat with 3 more sheets. (Recipe or personal preference may substitute brushing with melted butter, olive oil or egg wash.)  Place fruit onto fillo and cut a circle about 3” from the fruit. Repeat above step but cut short edge of this stack into 1” wide strips.

 

Place fruit (such as apple or pear, cored) on each circle and gather sides up around fruit. Using fillo strips, start at the top of the fruit and wrap fillo strips around it, overlapping slightly.  Brush with butter and place on lightly greased cookie sheet.

 

Reroll unused fillo sheets and follow storing instructions on package.

 

Bake in preheated 350ºF oven about 25-30 minutes or until golden brown before serving your phyllo wrapped fruit.
