    To prepare the tartlets, brush the sheets of filo pastry with melted butter and stick 2 layers together. Using scissors cut into 12 squares to fit into a muffin tray which has been brushed with butter.

    Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes until golden but keep an eye on them. To assemble, place the filo tartlets cases on a platter, spoon caramelised leeks into each. Place a slice of brie on top and spoon over a little cranberry relish.  Garnish with chives.
