Toast the walnuts and chop into small pieces and add them to the strawberries. Crumble the Stilton and mix with the strawberries. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Carefully place a phyllo sheet on a flat surface and lightly brush with the melted butter. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Place another sheet of dough on top of the other and repeat process 5 times. Cut the pastry in a long, 1-inch width triangle, place it on a silpat or a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle crumbled Stilton. Allow to cool on a wire rack. To serve, slice the peaches in half and remove the pit. Place peaches in center of 4 plates, scoop strawberry salad and place on top of peaches. Drizzle the Balsamic Reduction, add a few Candied Walnuts around plate, and top with Stilton crisps.
