What is filo pastry?

Filo pastry is a very fine pastry which comes in sheets. They look like sheets of paper. Filo pastry is made of flour, salt, water and cornstarch .

The advantage of filo pastry is that it is very easy to handle: you can use it flat like in this recipe for Filo Tart with Summer Vegetables or to make bundles or small filled purses (aumônières in French). It is also with filo pastry that bricks, samosas, baklava or pastillas are made.

How to make a tart with filo pastry?

Making a tart from filo pastry is very easy. For this, you need a tart dish or any other type of dish that can go in the oven.

To begin with, it is important to grease well the bottom of the dish before placing the filo pastry. I recommend you to use olive oil for this recipe. If you are baking a sweet tart, you can use butter as well to grease the bottom of the dish.

Then it is advisable to also oil the filo pastry sheets using a brush. This will allow the filo sheets to be more flexible, thus preventing them from breaking. In addition, it will make the tart even more crisp when baking.

Then, place the filo pastry sheets on top of each other on the dish. Leave a few inches over the sides. You need to 6 to 12 sheets minimum depending on the size of the dish, otherwise the filling may pierce the bottom of the tart. Then garnish your tart.

The baking filo pastry is much more faster compared a classic quiche or tart dough (between 15 and 25 minutes depending on the filling).
