Hubby loves a pasty, he usually has one when we pop out for the day and always ends up disappointed , even when we had our trip for my birthday to Cornwall, we had a pasty and came away disappointed, obviously there are some people out there who make them properly but most of the time when you buy a pasty it is full of mush.
So tonight I made him some proper Cornish Pasties.
I do not enjoy making pastry from scratch, so if I find some in the reduced section of the Supermarket I buy it, but I didn't have any so I made it from scratch.
For the Pastry.
450g Plain Flour
75 g Unsalted Butter
100ml cold water.
For the Filling
1 Large Potato
1 Large Onion
400g Beef Skirt
Salt and Pepper.
This made 6 standard size pasties, but I made 4 and 1 extra large one for hubby.
1 each for tea, and the rest for the freezer.
The Results - One very happy husband.
