    1. 1
      Divide the sheets of phyllo pastry in half so that they measure approximately 4-6in.
    2. 2
      Make the parcels one by one, keeping the rest of the pastry under a lightly dampened cloth so that it does not dry out.
    3. 3
      Blend together the wilted spinach leaves and soft cheese in a food processor until you have a smooth mixture.
    4. 4
      Brush your first sheet of pastry with melted butter, fold in half, brush the surface with butter, turn over and brush the other side with butter as well.
    5. 5
      Cut the piece of pastry in half and place about a tsp of the spinach and soft cheese mixture in the centre.
    6. 6
      Now gather up the sides of the pastry and gather them at the top, squeezing them together so that they form a money purse shape. Place on a greaseproof tray.
    7. 7
      Repeat this process with the rest of the soft cheese and spinach, you should be able to make 20 of them. Place in the fridge.
    8. 8
      With the remaining 20 sheets, make them in exactly the same way, substituting the soft cheese and spinach for a small cube of camembert, ½ tsp of cranberry sauce and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. Place in the fridge to set for about 30 minutes.
    9. 9
      Heat the sunflower oil to about 350F and begin cooking the parcels, 4-5 at a time, for 2-3 minutes per batch until they are crisp and golden.
    10. 10
      Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on lots of kitchen paper until they are cool enough to eat.
