Mascarpone, Gruyere & vegie pastries

Method

 

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the carrot, celery and leek until reasonably tender, stirring now and again.
  • Then transfer the mixture to a large bowl with the mascarpone, gruyere, 1 egg, the peas, spring onions and seasonings. Mix until well combined.
  • In another bowl, beat the remaining egg with the milk.
  • Then, using pastry cutters, cut out rounds in the pastry and brush the edges with egg wash.
  • Mound the cheese mixture in the centre of 4 pastry rounds. Place another pastry round on top, press down to seal and crimp the edges with a fork.
  • Place the pastries on 1-2 large lightly oiled baking trays. Paint the tops generously with more egg wash and cook in the oven for about 10-12 mins until puffed and golden.
  • Serve as is or with a simple salad on the side.
