  • 2 x 250g round brie
  • 270g pack filo pastry
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 140g pecans, finely chopped
  • drizzle of honey


  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Unwrap the cheeses and slice each in half horizontally through the centre to make 4 rounds. Cut each round into 8 to give 32 wedges in total.

  2. Unroll the pastry and take out one sheet at a time, keeping the remainder covered under a tea towel. Cut the pastry into 4 long strips, brush with melted butter, then place a wedge of Brie at the top of each strip. Fold pastry over, then over again to encase the Brie, as you would a samosa, into a triangle. Dip one side of the pastry into the beaten egg, then into the chopped pecans. Put on a baking tray, then repeat with the remaining Brie, pastry, egg and nuts.

  3. Bake the bites for 8-10 mins until golden. Remove from the oven and allow to stand for 2 mins before drizzling with honey to serve.
