Ingredients

  • 125g Carr’s Wholemeal Flour
  • 125g Carr’s Strong White Flour
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 egg (beaten, to glaze)

For the filling

  • 2 red onions
  • 1 clove of garlic (crushed)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 eating apples (skin on and diced)
  • 125g crumbly Lancashire cheese
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • Balsamic vinegar

Instructions

1
Sift the flours together, then tip the bran left back into the bowl, add a pinch of salt. Add 5 tbsp of cold water to the oil and mix with the flour to form a dough. Knead lightly, then wrap in cling film and leave to rest whilst preparing the filling.
2
Grease and line two baking sheets.
3
Cut the onions in half and slice, cook slowly in a frying pan with the butter. When the onions are translucent add the sugar, garlic and balsamic vinegar and continue to cook until very soft.
4
Add the apples to the pan and cook for a few minutes until coated in all the juices and softened. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
5
Roll out the pastry on a floured surface until 3mm thick. Using an 11cm pastry cutter cut out approx 12 discs.
6
Add the crumbled cheese to the onion mix and season with salt and pepper to taste.
7
Spoon a tablespoon of mixture in the centre of the pastry disk, brush the edges with beaten egg and fold the pastry over to form a crescent shape. Pinch the pastry together and brush with egg and place on a prepared baking sheet. Leave the pasties to rest for approx 45 minutes before baking in the oven at 180°C (Fan 160°C, Gas Mark 4) for 15 minutes.
8
Cool before serving, and serve with a little pickle of your choice.
