    From my experience, once they are dry that's it. It is best to use them up all at once after opening, or seal very well in a ziploc for a short period of time in the fridge. For the dried ones you can cut them in strips or triangles and deep fry them to make a chip.

    Thanks for that post and the reply ladies.

    In a similar context...I bought filo pastry sheets sometime back. But there seemed to be too much flour between the pre-packed sheets. I could not dust them off and smearing it all with melted butter seemed like a fat idea. Cooking it as it is made the whole thing taste like dry flour. What can I do with it?

    It's my understanding that phyllo sheets are always brushed with butter (lightly) before using. You see the oil involved because you are doing it but puff pastry and other good crusts all have fat. Just get a brush that will apply the melted butter thinly.

    Thanks tashidelek2002...

    I understand the applying butter part. I guess I let the sheet dry too much before I used it.

    My question in this:
    Does it always come with as much flour between them? I bought it just the once, but it was all white between the sheets. I could not have made anything tasty with it.
