How Do I Layer Phyllo Dough?

The easiest way to layer phyllo sheets is to use cooking spray. Just place a sheet down and spray a light coating.

The traditional way uses melted butter or olive oil. Lay out one sheet of phyllo dough then lightly brush each layer, edges first before working your way into the center. It’s best to use a soft bristle brush for fewer tears.

See our “How to Layer Phyllo Dough” video for a handy how-to.
