Goat's cheese and cranberry parcels

Goat's cheese and cranberry parcels

Soft cheese and fruity cranberries in a deliciously light filo pastry – perfect for a quick lunch or a light supper


  • 2 sheets filo pastry
  • About 30g (1oz) butter, melted
  • 100g packet soft goat’s cheese
  • 2 level tbsp cranberry sauce
  • Salad, to serve


  • Set the oven to gas mark 6 or 200°C.
  • Cut each sheet of pastry in half to give 4 rectangles. Working quickly, before the pastry dries out, brush butter over 2 sheets of pastry, then place the other 2 sheets on top, positioning them diagonally opposite the first sheet.
  • Halve cheese and put one half in the centre of each pastry sheet. Spoon cranberry sauce on to each cheese.
  • Gather up the pastry around the filling, opening out the pointed corners of the sheet.
  • Place the parcels on a baking sheet and brush some butter over the outside of each.
  • Bake the parcels for 12-15 mins, or until the pastry turns a light golden colour.
  • Remove parcels from the oven and serve immediately with salad.
