Butternut Squash and Hazelnut Mini Phyllo Pies

These butternut squash and hazelnut mini phyllo pies are perfect for a dessert spread. I love using individual phyllo shells. They’re ideal for both sweet and savory recipes, and the new graham cracker flavor from Athens Foods just begs for a pie filling. I’m giving this recipe a Greek spin by teaming butternut squash, with hazelnuts, Greek yogurt, and a little feta cheese for the base of the filling. Maple syrup and warming spices like cinnamon and nutmeg round out the decadent dessert bite that’s sure to be a hit on any holiday spread.
