Phyllo is a versatile, paper-thin dough that can be folded and rolled into an assortment of shapes. Brushed with melted butter and baked, it becomes golden, crisp, and flaky. Phyllo triangles can be filled with savory cheeses, herbs, and spices to make finger-friendly packets that are great for appetizers and snacks.
