  • About

At our farm in Devon we make pasties with the crimping on top, but feel free to make a Cornish version with the crimping on the side. These can be made up to the point of baking, frozen, and cooked straight from the freezer, adding 30 minutes to the cooking time. To save time, use shop-bought shortcrust pastry.

Ingredients

For the pastry

  • 500 g plain flour
  • 250 g cold unsalted butter, cut into small dice
  • 1

Method
