Homemade Phyllo (or Filo) Dough
Chef John shows you how easy it is to make homemade phyllo. Create a well in all-purpose flour, then add olive oil, salt, white wine vinegar and warm water. Mix with your fingers until it just comes together and knead until smooth, supple and soft, or about 5 minutes. Wrap in plastic and leave at room temperature for at least an hour. Divide dough into 20 pieces (20 grams each), then flatten each in a mixture of cornstarch and flour, to a size of 5 to 6 inches. Layer each flattened dough and stack. Then roll gently the entire stack to roughly double the size, adding more cornstarch mixture as needed. Wrap in parchment and plastic and store or freeze!
