October 2010 Cheese, Ham and Pear stuffed Filo parcels.
2 x Pears (Williams work well)
200g Smoked Applewood cheese
150g Thick ham cut into small cubes
Pack of Filo Pastry
25g melted butter
Cut the pears into small cubes, Grate the cheese and combine with the ham. Add a little cracked black pepper and a drop of olive oil depending on taste.
Lay out 4 sheets of pastry and generously cover with melted butter (this will help it to go crispy) lay another sheet on top of that.
Put a quarter of the mixture in the middle of the pastry, fold in two opposite corners so that they overlap a little then fold in the remaining points.
Put on a grease proof paper lined baking sheet so that the folds are on the bottom, butter the tops.
Bake in a hot oven 220c for 10-12 mins
Serve on a bed of your favourite salad leaves with a drop of simple vinaigrette.
