Goat Cheese Appetizers in Filo Pastry Canapes Recipe

These amazing canapé parcels are perfect for buffets or dinner parties. They are best served piping hot from the oven but they are just as nice warm or even at room temperature. Making them is really simple, even if you are a beginner in the kitchen.

You can increase the recipe if you want to make more. Making more does not take much more time than just making the amount in the recipe. If you want to make bigger parcels, just use two filo pastry sheets, eight inches across, and put all the ingredients into that. That size would make an entree but following the recipe as it stands you will get four canapés.

The dressing can either be drizzled over the top of these canapés (do this just before serving them, so they do not go soggy) or you can serve it on the side as a dipping sauce. Obviously if you are serving these at a buffet it is best to serve the dipping sauce on the side; some people might not want any and you do not want the canapés sitting around getting soggy.
