Ingredients

The Pastry:

  • 340g/12oz Plain or all purpose four
  • 85g / 3oz Cold butter
  • 85g / 3oz Cold lard or shortening
  • 115g /mls Cold Water
  • 4g / 1/2tsp Salt

  • 255g / 9oz Mashed potato (without butter)
  • 255g / 9oz Corned beef
  • 1 Small onion:  finely chopped
  • 1 Egg well beaten (egg-wash)

Method

  • Add flour, salt, cold butter and lard to food processor, pulse until it looks like fine breadcrumbs, slowly add cold water to the processor while it’s running; when the pastry forms into a ball it’s done, this should take around 45 seconds.
  • Cut pastry into four equal pieces, and form into puck shapes, wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Add all of the filling ingredients to a bowl and mix until everything is combined.
  • Add salt and white pepper to taste.
  • Divide the filling equally into 4 and refrigerate until it stiffens.
  • Roll each pasty piece into circles, approximately 4 mm thick and 18cm / 7” in diameter, you can use a small plate or bowl cut perfect circles.
  • Place each piece of filling on one side of each of the pastry circles, leaving shy of the edges.
  • Brush the egg wash all around the edge of the pastry and fold it over forming a pasty shape.
  • Gently press down and crimp the edge of the pastry together.
  • Place all 4 pasties on a greased baking tray, you can also line the tray with parchment paper if preferred.
  •  Preheat your oven to 160°C that’s 320°F or gas mark 3.
  • Coat all 4 pasties with the egg wash, and pierce 2 or 3 small vent holes in the top of each pasty.
  • Place the tray in the middle of the oven and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow the pasties to settle for 5 minutes on the tray, and then carefully transfer them off the tray and onto a wire rack allow to cool or serve them hot.
