Your choice of filling
Recommended AGA Cookware:
AGA Portmerion Mini Muffin Tray
Mini Filo Tartlets
Makes 48 little cases from one packet of filo GF, V, Vg with suitable pastry and fillings
First put the butter in a small dish on the back of the AGA or in the AGA warming oven to melt.
Without unrolling the pastry, cut it into 4 equally sized pieces. Any not needed at this point can be wrapped and
frozen to use another time.
Unroll one of the pieces and cut into squares - this will be 4 - 6 per section depending on the dimensions of the
pastry. Each pile will have 7 or 8 pieces from the sheets.
Repeat with the remaining pastry to give a pile of approx 100 pieces.
Take a square and brush one side with melted butter, place another square on top but offset and brush with butter.
Pick up the two sheets together and press into the tin.
Repeat with the remaining filo sheets.
Bake in the AGA roasting oven for 10 mins until lightly browned.
Cool and store in an airtight container or freeze until needed.
Filo pastry cases are so versatile and make a very pretty nibble to serve with drinks or as part of a selection of dishes. Vary the fillings as you like, these cases can be
used for sweet as well as savoury fillings.
This recipeuses ready made filo pastry which is usually suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Homemade filo pastry is fun to make too - it should be rolled thin enough to read the newspaper through it!
The filo cases can be prepared and baked ahead and stored in an airtight container for several days or frozen
Defrost at room temperature and fill up to 4 hours before serving. Unused filo can easily be frozen to use later.
