      Well it was as tasty as I remember it many years ago. I followed the recipe , easy to do and yummmmmy. Wasn't sure how much 3 slices of ham was but I used 375g and it was enough, I cubed it instead of slicing and my pastry was brown within the 30 minutes. Will be making this again, thanks MarieAlice
