Chilli Jam and Brie Filo Parcel Canapes
1 pack of brie
1 jar of SDCF Chilli Jam
1 pack of ready rolled filo pastry
Olive oil or melted butter
Pre-heat oven to 180°C or Gas Mark 4.
Make the parcels by placing a sheet of filo pastry on the work surface (keep the remaining sheets covered in cling film).
Brush the sheet of pastry with a little olive oil or melted butter.
Cut the pastry into squares (about 12cm or 15cm square).
Place three squares on top of each other, at an angle to make a star shape (oil side up)
Place a small piece of brie in the centre of each square, top with a little chilli jam and then another piece of brie.
Fold the pastry up around the filling and scrunch the top so it holds together.
Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes until the cheese is melted and the pastry is golden brown and crisp.
For a variation, add a little bit of cooked bacon or chorizo to each parcel with the Chilli Jam, or try using goats cheese or feta cheese.
Another variation is to make open filo parcels/tart cases - use half size pastry squares pushed into holes in mini muffin tins.
