Filo fail! The wrapping-the-dough-around-the-pin method that I’ve seen demonstrated simply isn’t working for me. Next I’ll try the straight roll, which I believe will have better results. I also think I’m a little over-obsessed with getting my filo thin. It should be thin of course, but no normal human can get filo as thin as the store-bought stuff. I’ll tell you this though, that dowel rod has earned a place of permanence in my pin collection. It’s fantastic.
