How to make it

  • Mix liquid butter and white wine at a ratio of 1:1. Cut the dough sheets in squares of approx. 23 cm by 17 cm. Put some of the butter-and-wine-mixture on one half of the sheet. Place small leaves of herbs at the edge of the sheet and salt the coated side. Put the dry half of the dough sheet on the coated half and press both together. Coat one third of the sheet again with the butter mixture and fold it. Now again coat the half of the sheet with the mixture and fold for the last time. Press the sheet layers together and coat the herbal outside of the bar with butter.
  • Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C with circulating air and bake the bars for approx. 3 to 4 min. on each side. Start with the butter-coated, herb side facing down. When the bars turn golden, remove them from the oven and carefully wipe remaining oil with a kitchen paper from the bar's surface.
  • If you want the bars to be extremly thin, cut the sheets only half as wide as specified above and omit the first folding step.
  • You can also make fine bars with rice paper from an Asia food store. But you have to serve this variant immediately after baking because the rice sheets become very hard after a few minutes. Bars made with Philo dough can be baked hours before serving - they will remain tender and crispy.
