Phyllo Baked Feta with Infused Honey

I love when cherries come into season. I try to find a way to add them to everything. This is such a beautiful easy appetizer dish. The phyllo wrapped feta takes about 20 minutes to bake, I have even baked it on the Traeger and it was amazing. The rosemary balsamic infused honey really brings this appetizer dish all together.
