Amy Thielen, chef, food author and author of a memoir, Give a Girl a Knife, suggests a simplified technique that creates operative with filo easy: Rather than painstakingly lifting and fixation a skinny dough, piece by sheet, to form a layer, fist a clump of filo to make a covering of dough.

(Assembly is key: dual layers of filo-and-almonds on a bottom, a executive covering of Swiss chard, and dual layers of filo-and-almonds on top.) If your filo mix doesn’t fit a dish, trim a whole smoke-stack to fit. Lay one-fifth of a built filo into a dish. Brush a tip with simplified butter and shower with one-quarter of a almond mixture. Top with another fifth of a built filo dough, brush with some-more butter, and shower with another entertain of a almond mixture.

Add another fifth of a filo dough, brush with butter, and shower with a rest of a almonds. Top with a final covering of built filo dough.
