DIRECTIONS

  • Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl. Work in the butter with your fingertips until the mix looks like fine crumbs.
  • In a liquidizer, purée the parsley with the egg yolk and 2 tbsp cold water.
  • Drop this into the flour mixture and work in, adding enough cold water to make a firm dough.
  • Cover and chill for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • Cut the pastry into 4 pieces. Press each into a ball and roll out on a lightly-floured board to make a circle about the size of a dessert plate.
  • Transfer to a non-stick baking tray. Mix the potato with the onion, parsley, cheese and hard-boiled egg.
  • Lightly beat the egg yolk with the cream and stir into the potato mixture. Season.
  • Divide the mix between the dough circles, leaving a rim round the edge. Dampen the edges and fold the dough over the filling. Crimp the edges together. Prick each pasty with a fork and paint with beaten egg if you like.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the pastry is gilded and the interior soft (test with the tip of a knife). Serve warm or cold, with English mustard.
