Preparation

Boil potatoes in a pot of salted water, some 30 minutes.

Drain and mash with a potato masher or ricer.

Stir in 1 Tbsp., (15 mL) butter and set aside.

Cook leeks, covered, in 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) over low heat for 5 minutes. Add potatoes, tarragon and corn, blending thoroughly.

Melt 3 Tbsp. (45 mL) butter. Lay down a sheet of phyllo and brush with melted butter.

Lay a second sheet over top, brush it with melted butter; add a third sheet and brush with butter.

Keep phyllo sheets wrapped in a damp cloth so they don't dry out and crack.

Cut stacked sheets in two.

In the centre of each half, put 1/2 cup (125 mL) potato mixture.

Bring up the sides to make a bundle and tie it with a blanched chive stem.

Repeat process two more times.

Place bundles on a non-stick baking sheet or in a large oiled muffin pan, and bake 20 minutes or until golden brown.
