A fillo (phyllo) wreath is both festive and very, very edible. Decorated, the fillo wreath makes a great holiday centerpiece - it can be filled with flowers, mini pine boughs, cookies, desserts or a candle. But in the end, you'll want to eat this, all of it, by yourself.
Not being the greatest fan of sweet, this recipe is not overwhelmingly so. The caramel sauce is rich, and adds a layer of complexity, but it is not drop dead sweet as you will see. The recipe below is a bit tricky, but not desperately difficult. Just go at it to have some fun, and not worry too much if the fillo (phyllo) tears here and there - It somehow all works out in the end. Having a couple of packages of fillo on hand is a good idea if you are a perfectionist.
This wreath was made using Fillo Factory's Organic Whole Wheat Fillo Dough, but there is no reason why you can't use any of our other fillo dough or thicknesses
