Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
  • Brown leeks in oil until the moisture evaporates. Add garlic, curry, cranberries, and continue to cook for one minute. Season and set aside. Cut cheese into chunks and add to the mixture of sliced leeks.
  • Melt the butter. Take 2 sheets of phyllo dough, dab each with butter. Cut in 4.
  • Place about a tablespoon of leek mixture on the edge of each phyllo rectangle.
  • Roll the phyllo dough into a tight little roll. Pinch and twist the edges to seal. Cover lightly with butter to ensure that everything stays closed. Repeat with 2 remaining sheets of dough.
  • Place on a cookie sheet, with the sealed joint facing down. Brush with butter. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until the phyllo dough is lightly browned. Serve hot.
