From: Lynette Scribner <lscrib@...> Date: Wed, 10 Jul 1996 13:01:46 -0800 _Martha Stewart's Menus for Entertaining_ has a recipe for Duck-Filled Beggar's Purses. Don't see why you couldn't substitute your filling of choice. I'm not sure what to substitute for the chive tie, I'm sure someone would have a good suggestion. Here are the assembly instructions, excluding the duck filling. I don't know how big the ones in the movie were, but she mentions these being bite sized. Hope it works for you! "To assemble, spread 1 sheet of phyllo dough on a clean surface keeping the rest of the dough covered with a damp dish towel. Brush the entire surface with butter, then top with another sheet of phyllo. Repeat twice for a total of 4 sheeps of phylo dough one on top of another brushing butter between each layer. Using a sharp knife cut the layered dough into 6 squares. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling in the center of each phyllo square. Pull the corners up to the center and gather the dough pinching it closed over the filling. Tie each bundle securely with a single chive. Using sharp scissors, snip the dough off one inch above the chive ribbon so that the tops are even. The purses can be frozed on parchment-lined sheets, well wrapped, at this point. To serve, preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the purses on baking sheeps and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown."
