DIRECTIONS

  • Place frozen berries in a dish and let sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Puree berries in blender.
  • Add goat cheese to berry puree and blend until a consistency of frozen yogurt.
  • If using a large blender, remove mixture to a small bowl for easier handling.
  • Place berry mixture in freezer.
  • Unroll thawed phyllo roll and cut full sheets in half crosswise. Place desired amount of half sheets onto counter top or a cookie pan and cover with a sheet of parchment paper larger enough to cover entire phyllo sheets, then place a dampened cloth on top of the parchment paper. The parchment will keep the cloth from sticking to the phyllo.
  • Cover a cookie pan with a sheet of parchment paper ( wax paper is fine here too).
  • Place 1 phyllo sheet (half sheet) onto the parchment. Brush with butter or spray with butter-flavored canola oil. About 1/2 a second to 1 second of spray over the entire phyllo sheet should be enough. Brush the spray afterwards.
  • Place another phyllo sheet on top of the previous and coat it the same. repeat for approximately 4 more sheets.
  • Once you have 6 (or more if desired) sheets, Cut into 6 smaller squares (or 4 larger if you want larger bundles).
  • Remove berry mixture from the freezer. Place a heaping teaspoon onto each square of phyllo.
  • Fold opposite corners to each other to create a kind of closed bag.
  • Place folded bundles onto a tray or flat plate and place into freezer.
  • Repeat 8 through 13 until all sheets and mixture is used. ( you can freeze mixture for future use if you end up with extra). Be sure to put the berry mixture back into the freezer between bundles.
  • Store bundles in freezer until ready to bake.
  • Preheat oven to 375 Fahrenheit.
  • Remove frozen bundles from freezer and place onto parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Place tray in oven and bake for 15 minutes (or until golden brown).
  • Place bundles onto serving plates. Drizzle honey over each bundle and serve.
