DIRECTIONS

  • Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy, then add ricotta, cottage cheese and sugar and beat until well combined.
  • Working with 4 sheets of filo at a time, place a sheet of filo on a work surface, brush lightly with melted butter, then top with another pastry sheet. Continue brushing and layering until there are 4 layers.
  • Cut layered filo into four 12x18cm rectangles, then place one rectangle, with the shortest side facing you, on a work surface and spoon 1 tbsp cheese mixture along the shortest side, leaving a 1cm border.
  • Roll pastry into a cylinder, folding in the sides as you roll.
  • Brush with melted butter and place on a baking paper-lined oven tray. Repeat with remaining filo, filling and butter to form 24 rolls.
  • Bake filo rolls at 190C for 12 minutes or until crisp and golden.
  • Dust with ground cinnamon, then serve immediately. Flogeres are best made on the day of serving.
