You can freeze leftover phyllo sheets, if they haven’t dried. Make sure to put them in a tightly sealed bag.
Like all Mediterranean, the Greeks have a weakness for anise. Its scent is reminiscent of licorice. The people of Provence produce pastis, the Italians love sambucca while the Greeks drink ouzo. This national liquor is drunk neat, on ice, or diluted with fresh water. It is also used to flavor dishes such as this pastry. If you do not like the flavor of anise, omit the ouzo and add a little vanilla extract.
