Homemade rustic pasties

Apologies for my lack of new posts lately. It's been crazy busy at work lately & when I've had some free time to bake I've usually made gingerbread! I made some more marble cupcakes for my friends to take to our pub quiz and I didn't think it was worth posting repeats! So, today I finally had some time spare so I made some very rustic pasties. 

For the pastry
225g plain flour
pinch of salt
100g butter, cubed
dash of water
For the filling
4 potatoes, cubed
2 onions, cubed
100g cheese, cubed

Method
1. To make the pastry, put the flour & salt in a bowl. Use your fingertips to rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the water. Use a knife to cut through the mix to form a dough. Chill until needed.
2. Par-boil the potato until soft and leave to cool. Fry the onions. 
3. Divide the pastry into 3. Roll out into circles. Assemble the pasties by putting some of the potato, onion and cheese in the middle of the pastry circle. Brush the edge with milk. Fold the top half of circle over and press down. Use a fork to secure the edge.
4. Preheat the oven to 180. Bake for 27-30 minutes until golden brown. 

Ta da! 
























As I said, rustic! Hopefully I will have time to bake/post again soon, fingers crossed X Bo
