What are phyllo dough cups? Is it different than puff pastry?
Filo or phyllo dough is a very thin unleavened dough used for making pastries, most commonly in Middle Eastern recipes. The dough contains very little fat, so sheets are often layered with melted butter or oil. The air between layers makes it bake crisp and flaky. Phyllo cups are pre-formed into small cups that can hold fillings.
Puff pastry is different in that the butter is folded and pressed into the dough. This causes it to puff up when baking and makes a thicker, softer dough.
Where can I find phyllo dough cups?
You don’t need to find a specialty or Middle Eastern market. Most major grocery stores sell pre-made cups in the frozen section near pie crusts and pastries.
