Ingredients

  • 250g Essential Soft Cheese
  • 125g Essential Salted Butter, softened
  • 190g Essential Plain Flour, plus extra for rolling
  • ¾ x 395g can Essential Mixed Beans In A Spicy Tomato Sauce, the rest to serve
  • 1 Essential White Egg, beaten

Method

  1. Beat the cheese and butter together in a stand mixer, or an electric hand mixer, in a large mixing bowl. Once blended, gradually add the flour and beat again. Once a dough is forming, stop beating and use your hands to bring the dough together into a ball. Place in a bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and chill for 1-2 hours.

  2. After the pastry has chilled, flour the work surface and roll the pastry out to 0.2cm thick. Cut around a small plate (about 18cm in diameter) to make 5 circles.

  3. Line a baking tray with foil, baking parchment or a silicone liner. Preheat the oven to 220ºC, gas mark 7. Place 2-3 tbsp mixed beans (drain off any excess sauce as you lift the beans from the can, to avoid soggy bottoms) on 1 side of each pastry disc, leaving a 1cm border. Do not overfill, or the pastries will leak.

  4. Brush beaten egg around the edges of the circles and carefully fold the pastry over to encase the beans. Seal by pinching with your fingers, then use the tines of a fork, or pinch with your fingers, to crimp around the edge. Brush the sealed parcels with beaten egg and use scissors to snip 3 air holes in each parcel.

  5. Place the parcels on the lined tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. The insides will be hot, so take care. Serve with the remaining beans and sauce, heated up, on the side, if liked.
