Cheese and Onion Pasties

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Millereg

The traditional Cornish recipe uses a cheese such as Double Gloucester or English Cheddar, but I have made some very tasty varieties using Stilton, Feta, Bleu Cheese, and even Havarti.

Superb!! Had these for lunch today with a green salad and jacket potatoes, so easy and quick! I used a 14 oz. packet of frozen puff pastry and cheddar cheese, the kids loved them and I had to make another batch! I cut out eight square shapes with my pastry. Thanks for another good recipe!
