What you'll need
250g Philadelphia Original
100g smoked salmon, chopped
Black pepper to taste
Grated rind of ½ lemon
8 sheets of filo pastry
3 tbsp oil
Mix together the Philadelphia, salmon, black pepper and lemon rind and leave to one side.
Lay the filo pastry sheets on top of each other and cut into three equal strips to give 24 strips in all. Oil the top layer of filo, place a teaspoon of the Philly mixture on the end of each strip and roll up into a cylinder, then pinch the ends into a cracker shape.
Brush with a little oil and place onto an oiled baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining strips of filo until you have 24 crackers. Bake in an oven preheated to 200°C/gas 6/400°F for 10 minutes until golden and crisp. Serve warm or cold as a party bite or as a starter.
For a sophisticated cheffy touch, you could use chives to tie around the cracker ends. If you like more bite, substitute horseradish sauce for a teaspoon of the lemon rind.
