Melting fig filo parcels


4 sheets filo pastry, halved lengthways into long strips
150-200g brie, taleggio or stilton, diced
4-6 figs, diced
2 tsp fresh lemon thyme, leaves picked
50g unsalted butter, melted 


1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. Stack the pastry strips on top of each other and cover with a clean, damp tea towel. Remove the top pastry strip, leaving the others covered, and lay vertically. Place a few pieces of cheese and fig at the top of the strip; scatter over some thyme and season.

2. From one of the top corners, diagonally fold over the pastry to enclose the filling, and continue folding to form a neat, triangular parcel. Brush all over with melted butter and place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment.

3 Repeat to make 8 parcels, then chill until ready to cook. Bake the pastries for 10-15 minutes, until crisp and golden, and serve warm. SF
