Phyllo Cigars

Total Time: 20 MIN Makes: 4 cigars
Prep Time: 10 MIN Cook Time: 10 MIN

These versatile pastries with a light, flaky crust can take on a sweet or savory filling.

  • 12 sheets AthensĀ® Phyllo Dough (9″ x 14″), thawed
  • Cooking spray, as needed
  • 3 cups savory or sweet filling


Preheat the oven to 350F. Lay a sheet of Phyllo dough on a work surface. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Repeat with five more sheets of Phyllo.
Spread one and a half cups of savory or sweet filling along the bottom 2 inches of the long side of the Phyllo.
Roll the Phyllo up over the filling to form a roll. Continue to roll to the end of the Phyllo strip. Spray the outside of the cigar and place seam-side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Score the cigar in half. Repeat with the remaining Phyllo and filling to create two long cigars.
Bake cigars for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove and let set for 5 minutes.
Cut each cigar in half. Serve immediately.
