Posted October 14, 2018 11:14:37You don’t have to be a pastry chef to make something tasty from scratch.
This recipe, from this year’s Pies & Pies, has been a hit with my family and we’re trying to expand it to other pastry shops.
Here’s how:First, get your pastry dough out of the fridge.
Put it in a bowl with a few ice cubes.
Let it sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes.
Next, heat the pastry bag with a little oil in a frying pan or on a low heat in the microwave.
Once it reaches 170 degrees Fahrenheit, turn it over and cover it with a lid.
Cook for about 30 seconds to soften the pastry and allow it to cool to room temperature.
Next you need to chop up some sweet potatoes, carrots, potatoes and celery.
Mix all of these ingredients together in a small bowl.
This is how the dish will look like.
Now you’re ready to make the filling.
Heat a saucepan with a tablespoon of olive oil.
Add in a handful of fresh parsley and sauté over medium heat for about five minutes.
Then add in about a teaspoon of dried parsley.
This will add some crunch to the filling and will help thicken it.
When it’s all combined, pour it into a pastry bag and let it sit for a minute.
Cover the bag with plastic wrap and let sit for 10 minutes before you’re going to roll it out.
You want it to be smooth and have a nice, round shape.
Next, slice the potatoes into wedges and put the rest in a food processor.
Add them to the food processor along with the celery, carrots and potatoes.
Process until the mixture is a bit thick.
Add the egg, the parsley, salt, pepper and olive oil and process again.
This should be smooth.
Now put the bag back into the fridge to chill.
When you’re done, place the pastry dough into a freezer bag.
Make sure to use an airtight bag to keep your pastry from getting too soft.
When you’re finished, cut out the triangles.
If you want to make it smaller, you can use a knife or scissors to make smaller ones.
Now, take your bag of pastry dough and put it into the freezer bag and freeze it for a few hours.
Once you’re frozen, pull out the dough and slice it into triangles.
Place the triangles on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes, until they’re golden brown.
The tops will look a bit crisp.
The bottom is still soft and still firm.
Remove from the freezer and serve warm.
