About Phyllo Borek with Soda Water:

I do not know the situation in other countries, but ready made phyllo dough is sold in every Turkish supermarket. This recipe will be very very easy if you can find one of those packaged ready made phyllo doughs. Turkish people have used this dough for centuries and it seems they will use it for pastries for more centuries. So many borek types can be made with this extra useful dough and this recipe is about one of them. I used soda water (or lets say mineral water or sparkling water) and Turkish white cheese, but you may use feta cheese, potato, spinach etc. instead of white cheese for filling.
