160 g cream cheese

In a frying pan with a little olive oil, saute the mince until it is colored. Pour the dried fruit, apple and spices.

Remove from heat, salt and pepper add mustard and cream cheese until homogenized.

Cut the crust sheet in vertical strips, put a tablespoon of the mixture at the beginning of the strip, spread with Laconian Legacy olive oil and fold the sheet triangular to bottom. Rinse with water.

(If you use puff pastry, cut the sheet into square pieces, fill with the mixture, fold and sprinkle with egg.)

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake in a preheated oven at 180oC for 15-20 minutes.
