Preparation Instructions:

Place frozen fillo in refrigerator overnight to thaw. Remove from the refrigerator and keep at room temperature for at least 2 hours prior to using. Check that fillo is fully unfrozen to prevent from braking or cracking. Prepare all the ingredients that will be used to make your favorite pastry. Unfold as many sheets as needed for your recipe and cover the remaining dough quickly with plastic wrap or damp towel to keep from drying. Once finished, return all unused fillo back in fridge or freezer.

Appetizer Shells

Place each stack of fillo into a hole pushing down to form the shape of the cup. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden, being careful not to let them burn. Let shells cool completely before removing to prevent braking. Fill with your favorite dips, sweet spreads, or cheeses and enjoy!
