Ingredients

  • 5 half sheets Athens phyllo dough
  • ½ stick unsalted butter melted
  • 7 oz block feta 
  • fresh dill
  • 1 Tbsp truffle honey or other honey
  • ½ tsp sesame seeds
  • ½ tsp black sesame seeds
  • ½ tsp flaky sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Working quickly, transfer 1 half sheet of phyllo dough to the prepared baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, quickly brush the phyllo with butter. Immediately place another sheet of phyllo dough on top, then brush with butter. Repeat until all 5 sheets of phyllo are stacked.

  • Turn the wrapped feta over so the seam side is facing down. Brush the top with melted butter, then bake for 25-30 minutes, or until phyllo is crispy and golden brown.

Notes

Make sure phyllo is completely defrosted before you begin. 
Cut the stacked phyllo dough in half before you begin working. Using full sheets of phyllo dough will create an improper balance between pastry and cheese.
This appetizer is best when served day of. The phyllo dough will not be as crispy after the first day.
