Ingredients

  • 16 sheets phyllo dough, thawed
  • 1⁄2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 10 1⁄2 ounces fresh goat cheese, divided
  • 1⁄3 cup honey
  • 1⁄2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • Chopped pistachios, for topping

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • On clean, flat work surface, gently arrange 1 sheet phyllo dough; brush with butter. Top with another sheet of phyllo dough. Brush top with butter.
  • Along long edge of phyllo dough, crumble about an eighth of the goat cheese. Gently and loosely roll phyllo dough up and over cheese to create log.
  • Twist log into spiral shape (don’t worry if the dough tears in some places). Place spiral onto prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Bake spirals 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly golden and crisp. Top with drizzle of honey, pomegranate seeds and pistachios. Serve warm or at room temperature.
