Orange Spice Pasties

Post by Jescissa » Fri Nov 30, 2007 7:37 am

I had some leftover pastry today after making a savoury pie for dinner and I had some mandarin oranges to hand too...

1. Roll out pastry until fairly thin
2. Cut circles out of the pastry, (use a cup and cut around it)
3. Line three segments of mandarin in the centre of the pastry circle
4. Sprinkle a pinch of ground cinnamon over the mandarin in each circle
5. Bring the two sides of pastry together and pinch along the top to seal the pasty
6. Brush with a little beaten egg and sprinkle a pinch of sugar over each pasty
7. Bake for around 20 minutes at gas mark 6!

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Sorry, maybe just me... What is "gas mark 6"?

I'm still trying to get past the thread title of "Pasties"
:lol:

hmmm... edible adornments for female endowments
=P~

It frees my Mind and keeps my Heart pure.

:lol: :lol: :lol: I love cultural differences! A pasty is a food! Have you never heard of a Cornish pasty? It's basically a pie without the pie dish. The filling is put in the middle and then the pastry is shaped around the filling and sealed :-D

Gas Mark 6 is about 400˚F or 200˚C on other ovens! I have a gas oven at home.

Hmm, I wonder if Nutmeg would taste good, instead of the cinnamon.

Don't get me wrong, I love cinnamon, I just get sick of it sometimes.

Ooh, possibly? I didn't have it to hand, only cinnamon...and that cinnamon was about 2 years old (or more :lol:)
