Method

  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 1 tsp 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 mins. Or, cover the unbaked twists with cling film, chill for up to 1 day and bake just before serving.

Ooh, just seen this! I'd like to repeat Whirlwind's question ref freezing. When I get my kitchen back (extension) I'll test that theory and freeze uncooked and then prob cook from frozen so the filo doesn't dry out during defrost. Has anyone done this and can report back?

Excellent starters on Christmas Day! Everyone loved them.

These didn't go down too well with the non vegetarians at my party
There was a bit too much pastry and it was very bland

These sound nice. I may make some for my Mum's Boxing Day party. Could they be frozen before cooking? If so, would they need to be defrosted or can they be cooked from frozen?
