Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Unwrap the cheeses and slice each in half horizontally through the centre to make 4 rounds. Cut each round into 8 to give 32 wedges in total.
  2. Unroll the pastry and take out one sheet at a time, keeping the remainder covered under a tea towel. Cut the pastry into 4 long strips, brush with melted butter, then place a wedge of Brie at the top of each strip. Fold pastry over, then over again to encase the Brie, as you would a samosa, into a triangle. Dip one side of the pastry into the beaten egg, then into the chopped pecans. Put on a baking tray, then repeat with the remaining Brie, pastry, egg and nuts.
  3. Bake the bites for 8-10 mins until golden. Remove from the oven and allow to stand for 2 mins before drizzling with honey to serve.

Done these for 2 parties now and are always tasty. Freeze well too. They are a little fiddley with the filo pastry but if you have time and patience then worth the effort.

Hmmmmm......the brie oozed out of the pastry all over the baking sheet despite several layers of filo around it. What was left inside tasted good though.

Looks like a good idea....although i'd probably do cashews instead of pecans and ditch the honey so that it's savoury rather than sweet/savoury!
