Why not try?

There are so many great drinks occasions in December that it’s good to have a few simple finger-food recipes at hand. These vegetarian bites are always a crowd pleaser and go especially well with a glass of bubbly.

I like to prepare the filo bites in advance so that I only have to reheat them once my guests arrive. Any leftovers can easily be frozen, which really comes in handy when unexpected guests arrive.

1
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
2
Drain the pears, cut into small cubes and set aside until needed
3
Cut the filo pastry sheets into small squares, so that they fit into the holes of a muffin tin
4
Melt the butter and use a little to grease one muffin hole. Lay a filo square into the hole, brush with more melted butter, then top with another filo square
5
Repeat the process one more time, so that you end up with three buttered filo layers
6
Lay a few pear cubes onto the filo pastry, so that the bottom is covered. Fill the remaining muffin holes with buttered filo pastry and pears
7
Once all of the muffin holes are filled, crumble some Stilton over the pears and decorate each filo basket with a whole pecan nut. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes
8
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving
