  • 80g soft goats cheese
  • 2 tbsp cranberry sauce
  • 2 sheets of filo pastry
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Olive Oil


  1. Set oven to gas mark 6 (200 degrees)

  2. Place onions in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.

  3. Drain onions well then add and mix in the wine vinegar. Set aside until ready to use.

  4. On a clean surface, cut each sheet of filo in half so that you have four rectangles. Brush olive oil on two of the rectangles.

  5. Place one of the dry filo rectangles on top of an oiled one, so that you have a cross. Repeat for the other.

  6. Spread 1/2 tbsp of cranberry sauce in the centre of the cross, followed by 1/2 the cheese, then a tbsp of the onions finished with 1/2 tbsp of cranberry sauce. Repeat for the other parcel.

  7. Gather up the pastry bringing the corners to the centre scrunching up the pastry at the top to create a ruffled appearance. Lightly brush with oil then repeat for the other parcel.

  8. Place the parcels on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 12 - 15 minutes until lightly golden.
