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

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