Cheese and onion pasties recipe

cheeseand onion pasties 3We used to buy frozen cheese and onion pasties from a local store – until I realised just how expensive they were and how easy they are to make at home.

I don’t make pastry from scratch very often these days (when I do, this is a great recipe) and for this recipe I use ready-to bake croissant dough – it seems to be tastier that the commercial pastries you can buy. We don’t eat meat so have these delicious little parcels as a main meal, served with a simple salad but they are ideal as an appetizer or even just a snack.

The tubes of dough have a long life if they’re kept in the fridge and with a couple of onions and a chunk of cheese, I can make dinner quickly and easily. Oh, and inexpensively too.

Use the oven temperature and cooking time that the dough manufacturers recommend on the packaging. For the kind I use, cooking time is only about twelve minutes.
