I'm missing something or my computer doesn't like your format . . . How much vegetable shortening should I use? Thanks.

Happy holidays to you and yours!

About

This gluten free phyllo dough recipe makes wonderful pastries, toaster pastries (pop tarts) and more. Easy to make, as you do not have to roll out several layers of butter. I have filled toaster pastries with orange marmalade, chocolate ganache, and more. Just add a little bit of sugar to the dough. Enjoy!
