Nothing says festive than some cranberry and brie parcels – for me any way. Every year we have these parcels for a Christmas dinner course and they are my favourite things ever!
I thought I would share a recipe for them in which you can make your own easily and quickly. This recipe is not my own personal recipe – but off of BBC Good Food (where I seem to find all of my recipes from.)
12 sheets filo pastry
100g butter, melted
250g brie, cut into 18 chunky fingers
18 tsp cranberry sauce
50g walnut, roughly chopped
Sprinkling of poppy seeds
1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Stack 2 of the filo sheets.With a widest edge facing you, brush with some melted butter. Put 3 Brie fingers at even intervals across the bottom of the filo. Top each finger with 1tsp cranberry sauce, then sprinkle over a few chopped walnuts.
2. Roll up the filo from the bottom. Cut into 3 parcels, and twist the ends to seal. Brush with more butter and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Bake for 10 minutes. Or, cover the unbaked twists with cling film, chill for up to 1 day and bake just before serving.
3. & that’s all! All thats left is to pour yourself a drink and put a Christmas movie on!
Let me know if you make these, or if you have any of your own favourite festive recipes!
