Notes on working with phyllo pastry:

4

Thaw out the phyllo pastry in the refrigerator at least 1 day before using

5

Allow the pastry to sit out (in its packaging) at room temperature at least 1 hour before using.

6

Take the pastry out of plastic packaging at the time of use (not before) or it will dry out and crumble.

7

To keep the pastry from drying out while working with it, place a dry kitchen towel over it and then a slightly damp kitchen towel over that.
