Man in the Moon pasties

    1 hour

    I found this recipe in magazine ages ago and have been using it fairly frequently since. You can shape the pasties into a man in the moon shape or alternatively cut a circle to make a pasty shape. Absolutely delicious and very moreish especially eaten outside with a glass of mulled wine.

    1. Preheat over to 200c/400f/gas mark 6. Lightly grease 2 baking trays with oil or butter.
    2. Combine the cheese, apple, sultanas, walnuts, spring onion, mustard and eggs.
    3. Unwrap the pastry (you may want to roll a bit thinner) and cut around each round in 6 equal wedges. Spread a little of the filling on to each. Lightly brush the edges of the pastry with water and roll up from the pointed end. Seal the edges and shape each one into a crescent moon.
    4. Place on the baking trays and cook towards the top of the oven for 30 minutes until golden brown.
    5. Serve warm.
