  • 1 (1.9 ounce) box frozen mini phyllo shells about 12
  • 2 ounces goat cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons pistachios chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place frozen phyllo shells on a baking sheet. Bake for about 3 minutes or until crisp. Cool.
  • In a food processor, combine goat cheese, cream cheese, lemon zest, cinnamon, and honey. Blend until smooth, scraping the sides at least once.
  • Pipe or spoon the cheese mixture into the phyllo shells and top with pistachios.


I like to use Moxy Kitchen's Spicy Cinnamon Mix for a little something extra.
