Suzy's Pastry Tips
- Filo pastry needs to be mixed really well before you rest it. If you don't get the gluten working and glossy it wont stretch. Let it rest for 30 - 60 minutes depending on the temperature.
- When pulling out your pastry, use a clean cloth or a sheet so you don't get fluff in your pastry. Sprinkle the cloth with flour to prevent the pastry from sticking and gently tug the pastry to pull it out.
- Double fold the delicate pastry and cut off the thick edge.
- Cook the pastry through!
