I cooked this in Veronica Steele’s kitchen. Veronica’s house is on the most westerly point of Ireland, set in bleak but beautiful countryside. She also makes Milleens cheese, a great Irish cheese similar to the Munster cheese of Alsace – not surprisingly, as Irish monks took the original recipe there.
Boil and mash the potatoes. Add the flour, baking powder and a little salt to make a dough. Roll out into a large circle and cut into quarters. Divide the apples between two of the pastry triangles. Cover with the other two and seal the edges. Cook in a frying pan, turning once. When browned and cooked, cut a hole in the top of each and put in a generous helping of sugar and honey with a little butter Allow all of this mixture to melt and serve very hot.
