Brie & Cranberry Twists

Brie and cranberry is one of those marvellous combinations which is symbolic of Christmas. The sweet tang of the cranberry against the smooth creaminess of the brie is a very indulgent flavour to enjoy, but one that vegetarians have known about for years as a staple filling in coffee shop sandwiches.

These little crackers are a perfect treat as a canape at a party or as a light snack.

Brie & Cranberry Twists

  • Makes: 2 sheets makes 6
  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 10-15 minutes


  • ready-made filo pastry
  • brie, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • cranberry sauce
  • melted butter
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut the brie (straight from the fridge so it retains its firmness) into 1 inch chunks.
  3. Unwrap two sheets from the ready-made filo pastry. Filo pastry dries out very quickly, so return the unwanted sheets back to the packet and seal it. Have a damp tea-towel ready to drape over the filo pastry which is being used to prevent it from drying out and cracking.
  4. Brush one sheet of the filo pastry with the melted butter and lay the second on the top, this will help them stay together.
  5. Cut the pastry into sixths.
  6. Place a 1inch chunk of brie in the middle of each sixth, with a small dollop of cranberry sauce on top.
  7. Fold over the edge of the filo pastry, brushing the layers with melted butter to help them stick together.
  8. Turn over the pastry to the seal is on the bottom and place on a non-stick baking tray. Gently twist each end like a cracker and brush over with melted butter to glaze.
  9. Bake for 10-13 minutes, but check after 10 minutes.
  10. Leave to cool slightly before serving.
