Apple and Quince Feuilletés

Apple and Quince FeuilletéHere’s a fab thing to do with all that Quince Jelly you have made! Or you might find it as Pate de Coing (French) or Membrillo (Spanish). It goes really well with apples, but if you have some left over, try having it with some strong hard sheep cheese, like Manchego. This recipe uses filo pastry, so it is light on calories but great on texture.

  3. Excellent with Frozen Honey and Walnut Fromage Blanc, or with toasted chopped hazelnuts and whipped cream.
  4. *Tip: Working with Filo. Because it is made without fat, filo pastry can dry out quickly. Keep what you aren’t using covered with a sheet of cling film or a damp cloth while working on a single sheet at a time. When you’ve finished with what you need, wrap any remaining pastry in cling film and store in the fridge.
