  • Food Processor
  • Quarter Sheet Pan
  • Parchment Paper


  • 1 Package Miyokos Cashew Cheese
  • 6 Sheets Phyllo Dough
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil , Extra Virgin
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • ¼ Cup Walnuts , roughly chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon Thyme Leaves, fresh
  • 1/2 Cup Figs , Fresh, quartered


  • Preheat the oven to 400° Fahrenheit, and prepare a small baking sheet by lining with parchment paper.
  • Place the cheese in a small food processor, and pulse until the cheese is pliable, stopping and scraping down the sides as necessary.
  • On a large surface, lay a sheet of phyllo, and spray or brush with olive oil, making sure to lightly coat the entire surface with oil. I use my hands to make sure it's all spread out. Lay down another sheet of phyllo, and repeat with the oil until you've used all 6 sheets.
  • Place the cheese in the center of the phyllo sheets, making a rectangle, about 4 inches by 6 inches wide. You want to make sure that you have enough phyllo on the sides, so that when you fold it over, all of the phyllo is completely covered.
  • Place the phyllo packet seam side down on the parchment paper. Spray the top with olive oil ensuring the entire surface has a light coating of oil. With a paring knife, carefully cut into just the top of the phyllo making 6 triangles. Make sure to not cut the sides or bottom, as the cheese will ooze out. This helps with cutting once it's baked and out of the oven.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until the phyllo is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool slightly for 5 minutes. Remove to a cutting surface, and finish the cuts on the triangles. Transfer to a serving platter, and drizzle with maple syrup, thyme, walnuts and figs. Enjoy!
