Makes 12


Serving suggestion:


  1. Preheat your oven to 200˚C.
  2. Cut your filo into 10cm squares and use them to line a greased muffin case. Overlap the square sheets by rotating every 45˚ to form a flower-shaped parcel. Brush melted butter between each layer and repeat.
  3. Once you have used all your filo pastry, fill the tart cases with a slice of ripe fig and a few pieces of diced brie, sprinkled with chopped thyme.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cheese melts and the filo is golden brown.
  5. Remove from the oven. While still warm, drizzle with honey and sprinkle each parcel with a pinch of smoked sea salt.
  6. Serve warm with a chilled glass of Sharpham Rosé.
