I had to brag here. I made Rose’s apple strudel recipe on Sunday and made my own phyllo dough! I’ve never even attempted such a thing before and in fact hadn’t even used store-bought dough.
After mixing together the dough I looked at that tiny little lump and thought, “It would be against all the laws of nature for you to transform into a 48” sheet of pastry.” I really didn’t think I’d be able to do it. But it worked! Admittedly, it took a little long, even with my mom helping me stretch it, and we probably only got it to about 36” before I decided it was getting too dry and finished it up.
This was such a milestone for me in my pastry making experience. Thanks Rose!
