Ingredients

  • 6 sheets phyllo pastry
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 6 oz old Cheddar cheese cut in 24 cubes
Cranberry Chutney:
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 2 cups cranberries
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

Cranberry Chutney: In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add cranberries, sugar, tarragon, cloves, salt and pepper; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until thick enough to mound on spoon, about
20 minutes. Let cool.

Working with 1 sheet of phyllo at a time and keeping remainder covered with damp towel, brush with butter; cut into 12 squares. Using 3 squares for each bundle, stack slightly askew to make star shape.

Place 1 cheese cube in centre of each stack; top with 1 tsp chutney. Bring phyllo up and around filling; twist top to seal. Place on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; drizzle with butter. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. (Make-ahead: Freeze until firm, about 2 hours; store in airtight container for up to 1 month. Bake frozen, adding 4 minutes to time.)

Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until golden, about 10 minutes.
