Camembert and cranberry filo parcels

Serves: 12
Cooking Time: 20 mins


  • 100g ready-made filo pastry
  • 50g SPAR Butter, melted
  • 125g SPAR Marksbury Select
  • Camembert Cheese, roughly chopped
  • 125g SPAR Strawberry Jam
  • 50g SPAR Dried Cranberries
  • handful fresh chives, to tie



Preheat the oven to 200°C. Cut the filo pastry into 10cm-square sheets. Place two sheets on top of each other, brushing each sheet with the melted butter to ensure they stick together. Place a small amount of Camembert, jam and cranberries in the centre of the double-layer square. Enclose the mixture by tying the corners up with string to form a small parcel. Brush with butter and repeat with the remaining squares.


Bake the parcels in the oven on a lined baking tray until golden brown, 5 minutes. Once baked, remove the string and carefully tie each parcel with a chive. Serve while still warm.


Cook's tip: While working with filo pastry, it is very important to cover it with cling film whenever it is not being used, to avoid it drying out.
