When Harry met Santa

Here is a little glimpse of when Harry met Santa.  It really put me in the Christmas spirit and, although I was caught up in the excitement and didn’t take many pictures, I’m glad I remembered to capture what I did!

Brie and cranberry tart recipe

Ingredients

  • 150g cranberries
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Shop bought filo pastry (I used half a pack of Sainsbury’s own brand)
  • Brie (approx 1 inch cube per tart)
  • Cooking spray

Method

  • Put the cranberries, sugar and water in a pan and cook on a low heat for approximately 15 minutes, until soft.

  • Cut the sheets of pastry into squares, approximately 10cm x 10cm.
  • Lay 4 of your pastry squares on top of each other, all at different angles to make a star shape.  Spray each sheet of pastry with cooking spray on each side before adding to the layers.

  • Spray some cooking spray into a muffin tray and then place the pastry layers into the sections of the muffin tray to make the pastry cases.

  • Place a piece of brie into each pastry case and add a teaspoonful of the cranberry sauce that you made earlier on top.  (The tarts in my pictures have a little bit less brie in then I’ve stated in this recipe.  They were delicious but definitely needed a bit more, hence why I’ve increased it in the recipe!)

  • Bake the tarts in a preheated oven at 180°c for 10/15 minutes, until the pastry is golden and crispy.  I made some mince pie tarts at the same time with the leftover pastry.
  • Leave the tarts to cool on a cooling rack.
