Puff Pastry Appetizers with Labne Cream Cheese: Filled with Figs

Orchard Choice and Sun-Maid California Dried Figs are so versatile, whether served whole, sliced, rehydrated or here, chopped down almost to a mince for a chewy filling that’s satisfying in each bite. Try our Mission Dried Figs for the flavor you’ve come to know in figs from the popular nostalgic cookie. Or, try our Golden Dried Figs for a more delicate, nutty taste—like we do in the filling for our puff pastry parcels.

Feta Puff Pastry: Savory and Sweet

The foundation for this filling is creamy rich labne, a kefir cheese chock full of good for you bacteria that lends a tangy note more often associated with Greek yogurt. Mixed with our sweet dried figs, we add in feta cheese for its briny salinity and to balance the sweet with the savory.

Stock Up on Phyllo

If you can clear a bit of freezer space to keep phyllo dough sheets on hand, you are on your way to easy appetizers in no time. Just thaw according to manufacturer’s instructions. You can make the parcels smaller or larger, depending on the size you slice each sheet. Below in the recipe we suggest cutting each sheet into 9 squares and you’re good to go. The main thing to look for is the puff pastry parcels to be golden brown on the outside.
