Superb Cheese Flaky Pastry

popeye333, Sep 19, 6:44am
From the Holsts Mince and sausage Book just out. 2 cups flour, 1 cup grated tasty cheese, 125 grms cold butter. 1/2 cup cold water and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Put flour and cheese in a kitchen whizz. Using the chopping blade. Pulse in the butter and then add the liquids. Mix till it just forms a ball when pressed together. Shape into a ball and refridgerate 30 mins or so. ... I made little mince pies that are also in the book. But the pastry would be great for any savoury dish. Especially sausage rolls. Its the nicest pasty I have made or tasted.

I made this today and its really yummy. . even resembled flakey pastry (not bad for me)... used the off cuts for cheese straws which got demolished far to quickly. .

It is nice eh weezil I hant thought about using it for cheese straws. But Ive wanted to make them for ages, and these doo taste nice. I wonder if it would spoil it to add some cayenne pepper. I soo love cayenne with cheese. Then make thin straws and they saty crunchy. The left over pies I made on saturday will be eaten tonight and they are still crisp too.

I reheated the remaining two pies tonight in the microwave on 50% power and they were as crisp as when I made them on saturday. Still nice and flaky too.

You could add some cayenne - and a little mustard powder added would enhance the cheese flavour too, as it does with making cheese scones.

Well I made this pastry today and I am most impressed, my daughter called in this afternoon and asked what the yummy smell was coming from the kitchen I had leftover beef steak casserole from last night and made this delicious pie and also made bacon & egg savouries I would recommend to you ladies to try it thats if you haven't already! !

I made this pastry for the first time yesterday and it is great. I had to take a plate to work and wanted to make some mini quiche savories. I didn't have any of my usual bought flakey pastry so I gave this a go.
So easy and very tasty. This will go into my favorites file.
