Layer four squares, one on top of the other, making a half turn each time to form a star shape. Brush each square with butter as you work; repeat with the remaining pastry to make five more stars.

3. Place a piece of cheese in the centre of each star, then top with the onions and a teaspoon of the cranberry sauce. Draw up the pastry to enclose the filling; pinch well to seal.
