Phyllo dough

I've been wanting to experiment with eggroll-like appetizers using various stuffings. For example, pear + blue cheese + toasted walnuts and that sort of thing. Seems like there are many possible combinations if I can just figure out some kind of wrapper.

I've been kind of shying away from eggroll wrappers, which I can get at my grocer, because I'm not particularly shooting for an Asian flavor. I wanted to get some sheets of phyllo dough from the freezer section, but all my grocer carries is puff pastry dough and precooked phyllo hors'd'ovaries cups.

I was wondering if anyone here knows about the practicality of making my own at home, and if it's not too much trouble, perhaps provide a recipe. I make normal bread and pizza dough fairly regularly, and I've got a stand mixer. But maybe it's one of those things that's such a pain in the ass that it's not worth the bother... some of that pastry cooking seems like something you'd have to spend time learning.

Also interested in other options for a wrapper. Thanks.
