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