Kerrymaid’s Pumpkin Pasties

 

Pumpkin Pasty
PREP TIME: COOKING TIME: Serves
    20

Buttery

Ingredients

  • 500g Pumpkin/Butternut Squash (peeled and diced)
  • 20g Chef’s Pass Vegetable Bouillon
  • 100g Kerrymaid Grated Red
  • 30g Kerrymaid Buttery + 30g more, melted for glazing
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1 Tsp Allspice
  • Puff Pastry (enough to make 20 discs approx. 10cm across)
  • Warm water for sealing

Method

  1. Mix the Chef’s Pass Vegetable Bouillon with 1 litre of boiling water and add the diced Butternut Squash/Pumpkin.
  2. Cook until soft, then drain and allow to dry out for a while.
  3. Purée with a potato masher or even a wooden spoon (Chunks are fine and add to the texture!)
  4. Allow to cool slightly and add the Kerrymaid Grated Red, allspice, Kerrymaid Buttery and salt and beat in. This mix will be your filling.
  5. Prepare the puff pastry discs, dividing the filling evenly between them. Once all the discs are filled, brush the edges with warm water and fold over, pressing down with a fork to seal the edges. Brush the tops with melted Kerrymaid Buttery and if you wish you can score the tops lightly.
  6. Prick each pasty in the centre with a skewer to prevent leaking in the oven, bake at 180°C until golden brown and the pastry is cooked on the bottom (approx. 15-20 minutes). Serve warm or at room temperature.

TOP TIP FROM OUR CHEF

  • You can make this recipe more efficient on pastry by making turnovers (squares) rather than the traditional pasty shape. Also, try making them sweet by omitting the Chefs Pass Bouillon and cheese, and adding sugar and cinnamon.
