  • Soft cheese and fruity cranberries in a deliciously light filo pastry – perfect for a quick lunch or a light supper

    Ingredients

    • 2 sheets filo pastry
    • About 30g (1oz) butter, melted
    • 100g packet soft goat’s cheese
    • 2 level tbsp cranberry sauce
    • Salad, to serve

    Method

    • Set the oven to gas mark 6 or 200°C.

    • Cut each sheet of pastry in half to give 4 rectangles. Working quickly, before the pastry dries out, brush butter over 2 sheets of pastry, then place the other 2 sheets on top, positioning them diagonally opposite the first sheet.

    • Halve cheese and put one half in the centre of each pastry sheet. Spoon cranberry sauce on to each cheese.

    • Gather up the pastry around the filling, opening out the pointed corners of the sheet.

    • Place the parcels on a baking sheet and brush some butter over the outside of each.

    • Bake the parcels for 12-15 mins, or until the pastry turns a light golden colour.

    • Remove parcels from the oven and serve immediately with salad.

    Top tip for making Goat’s cheese and cranberry parcels

    As filo pastry dries out very quickly, keep it covered with a clean tea towel until it’s used, butleave it unrolled for the minimum amount of time.
