Let’s make these festive Christmas crackers
Start with cutting the filo pastry into squares. Depending on the size of the pastry sheets, you’ll get approximately 36 square sheets of filo pastry. As you know, filo sheets are very delicate, so make sure you handle them carefully.
Once squares are ready, the next step is assembling the ingredients of the filling. But before you add the filling, brush the pastry with a little butter. Now, place all the ingredients of the filling – a small slice of brie, a teaspoon of cranberry sauce and some almond flakes – at the very end of the square.
And now comes the fun part. Roll up the pastry very carefully and pinch the ends to make cute cranberry brie filo crackers. Brush the pastry with more melted butter so they’ll get a beautiful golden hue when baked. Finish off with a sprinkle of beautifully black sesame seeds. I arranged the crackers on two baking trays. This goes into the preheated oven and baked until golden.
About 15 minutes later, you can bite into sweet and creamy deliciousness of these cranberry brie filo crackers. For a finishing touch, I placed few rosemary leaves at both ends and it definitely adds to the aesthetic appeal. You can also tie chives at both ends to resemble crackers.
Aren’t these crackers cute enough to add to your holiday party menu?
