Cranberry, Cheese & Bacon Pies
350 grams plain flour
175 grams lightly salted butter
225 grams packet smoked back bacon, diced
225 grams baby button mushrooms, quartered
175 grams mature cheddar cheese, diced
5 tablespoons Ocean Spray® Wholeberry Cranberry Sauce
small handful flatleaf parsley, roughly chopped
1 egg, beaten
Place the plain flour and butter into a food processor and process to fine breadcrumbs. Add 3-4 tablespoons cold water until the mixture comes together. Chill for 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Roll out two-thirds of the pastry on a lightly floured surface and cut out 10 x 11cm circles and use to line 10 muffin holes. Roll out the remaining pastry and cut out 10 x 8cm circles and set aside.
Place the bacon and button mushrooms into a saucepan and cook for 8 minutes until the bacon is cooked, the mushrooms softened and any moisture is cooked off.
Stir in the cheese, Wholeberry Cranberry Sauce and parsley and divide between the pastry cases. Brush a little water around the rim of the pastry. Cover the filling with the remaining pastry circles and press together to seal. Roll any overlapping pastry back towards the centre of the pies to cover the rim and press down to give a good seal to the pies. Brush with a little beaten egg and bake for 25 minutes until crisp and golden.
Serve warm or cold with extra Wholeberry Cranberry Sauce.
