Hunky Hand Pies

I’ve noticed recently that a lot of recipes for hand pies (a trendy name for a Cornish Pasty) have been popping up. As far as magazines and the internet go, they seem to be the thing to eat this autumn.
Well, me for my part, I think I could eat them all year round. So have a whip round the fridge, get out all the veggies that are rolling around and get chopping…

The Dough
500g strong white flour, plus extra to dust
125g margarine
1tsp salt
Cold water

The Filling
1 fennel
2 parsnips
3 carrots
1 leek
1/2 a cabbage (I used a savoy cabbage)
1/2 an onion
1 bunch parsley
100g feta cheese
salt and pepper


Start of with the dough and leave it in the fridge to chill while you chop up all the veggies. Put the veggies in a pan and cook. Leave to cool.

Preheat the oven at 200°C. Roll out the dough and cut out circles to your desired size. Divide the filling between the pastry, leaving space around the edge. Crumble a bit of feta on each and season. Brush the edge with egg wash, then pinch the edges together to seal. Crimp as desired, and cut a small hole in the top of each. Brush over with egg.

Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown, then turn the heat down to 160°C and cook for another 20 minutes.
Ready just in time! The kids are home from school and can’t wait to tuck in…

…more anyone?

  2. Very nice, but the pastry would wreck my current diet plan (although I’m letting beer do that anyway). Are they now being called ‘hand pies’ because we’re not allowed to call them ‘Cornish’ pasties, unless they were made in Cornwall. They’d be nice with ‘Not Fried In France Fries’.

  4. Your blog has the most amazing pictures! And I’ll give this particular recipe a try one of these days – I’m kind of hopeless at baking and always on the lookout for something that sounds easy to make (but yummy, too).
    Also, thanks for reading some of my posts and liking them 🙂
