SPINACH-FETA FILO ROLL In this large version of classic Greek spanakopita, a roll of filo surrounds a filling of spinach and feta cheese. Let frozen filo dough thaw in the refrigerator overnight, then bring to room temperature before using. Once the sheets are out of the box, cover them with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out.
How to Prepare Homemade Phyllo Dough
Freshly made phyllo dough (also spelled "filo") is always preferable, and it isn't difficult. Use a pasta machine to make sheets of thin to thick dough to use for pitas and pastries. The alternative, rolling it out with a rolling pin, takes time and experience to master (see below for special instructions). This dough is ideal for small fried and baked pies, as well as pan-sized pie crusts.
