Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Finely chop the walnuts, but not too finely. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, or in the microwave.
Cut the sheets of filo or brick pastry into pieces of about 10 x 15 cm, using scissors or a sharp knife. If you're using filo pastry, it is best to stick two rectangles on top of each other to make the pastry sturdier.
Spread the filo pastry rectangles with a layer of melted butter and place some walnuts and crumbled Roquefort in the middle.
Roll the dough up tightly and use pieces of kitchen twine to tie the ends of the rolls together so that they look like sweets/candies.
Place the filo pastry parcels on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Spread the “sweets” with melted butter and bake them for around 10 minutes, until golden brown.
Let the filo pastry sweets cool down a little. Enjoy!
What is the difference between filo pastry and brick pastry?
They can both be used in the same way, but there is a difference. Filo is rolled out far thinner and is sold both fresh and frozen. Brick pastry is sold fresh as a kind of very thin pancake.
Which cheese tastes best in these?
You can use different kinds of cheese, such as roquefort or gorgonzola. Mature, hard cheeses, or goat's cheese, also pair very well with walnuts.
