Delicious Appetizer For Holiday Entertaining - Recipe

 

Holiday entertaining looms large this month, and I have
company arriving for the weekend...so I went through my trusty
list of recipes for something delicious to serve.  Here's another
delectable recipe from those fabulous folks at Daisy Brand:

 

Baked Cheese in Flaky PastryDaisy

Baked Cheese in Flaky Pastry

Prep Time: 15 MINUTES

Time to Table: 30 MINUTES

 

Serves: 6

Ingredients

 

  • 1/2 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese
  • 1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 6 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons apricot jam
  • Directions

    Mix the cottage cheese and the cranberries. Drain the liquid from the cottage cheese mixture by placing in a sieve lined with several layers of paper towels or coffee filters set in a bowl. Cover with more layers of paper towel and weight down with a small food can. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Mix the cottage cheese fruit mixture with Swiss cheese and the crushed red pepper; set aside. Unfold phyllo dough and place 2 sheets on baking sheet. Brush with butter. Place 2 more sheets across buttered sheets, forming an X. Brush with butter. Place 2 more sheets diagonally over original sheets. Brush with butter. Pat the drained cottage cheese mixture into 4-inch disc on the middle of the dough sheets. Spoon the jam on top of cottage cheese mixture. Pull edges of phyllo up to form a ball, twisting the top to seal the dough. Brush all over with butter. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-18 minute or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. *If desired, raspberry jam may be used instead of apricot.
