Chevre and Phyllo Kisses

Courses: Starters and appetizers
Serves: 36 people

Recipe Ingredients

12   Phyllo pastry
1   Unsalted butter
4 oz 113gMontrachet or other soft mild goat cheese
4 oz 113gCream cheese - softened
2 teaspoons 10mlHerbes de provence
  Salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Working quickly, place 1 phyllo sheet on a flat surface and brush the entire surface with butter. Place the second sheet directly over the first and brush it with butter. Using a pizza cutter, cut the phyllo into 12 squares (4 rows of 3 squares).

3. In a small bowl, mix together softened cheeses, herbs and pepper

4. Place a tiny bit of the cheese mixture in the center of each square.

5. Gather the corners of each square and twist over the cheese to form a tiny kiss or purse. Place on a cookie sheet. Brush the tops of the kisses with butter. Repeat the process with the remaining ingredients.

6. Bake until crispy and golden, about 10 minutes.

Serve immediately.

NOTES : I sometimes use butter flavoured cooking spray to coat the kisses with before cooking-saves calories and time! If you make these very small they look delicate and go further.
