      Thanks, Taylor, this recipe was great - and so easy to make! I never knew that phyllo dough was so simple. I quartered the recipe because I only wanted to make about one sheet. It was very easy to handle, and I'd recommend dividing the dough into three or four separate chunks before rolling. Thanks again!

      I made this exactly as written and it was great! The dough held together even rolled out tissue thin. I made a second batch that I rolled out into sheets with waxed paper in between and put in the freezer. When I thaw and use it I'll let you know how it freezes!
