You can never go wrong with feta cheese drizzled with honey. This feta wrapped in a parcel made of filo is baked until crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and with the help of the lemon and thyme, the flavors become so delicately sweet and delicious.

I love desserts, who doesn’t? This time, I would like to veer off the usual flavors that we are used to because feta cheese is the protagonist in this very simple and delicately-flavored dessert. The feta, wrapped in filo sheets, is baked with lemon zest and a few leaves of fresh thyme. Feta is a mild-flavored cheese that goes very well with other ingredients. It never dominates nor clashes with the flavors of any dish and for that reason, it is great to use both in dessert and savory dishes. Because of the lemon and herb, they give incredible hints of freshness and delicacy. When it is cooked, the filo becomes crunchy and golden while the cheese inside is so soft. It is a very simple dessert to put together but with incredible result. If you are in a hurry, this is a great idea to make – simple, delicate yet powerful in flavors.Print
