Directions

Method:

  1. The first thing you’re going to need to do to make this spinach pie is to – roll out two sheets of puff pastry into 12 inch circles at around 1/4 Inch thickness.

  2. Place one of the circles onto baking paper and spread a light sprinkling of breadcrumbs on it
  3. For the filling; Boil the spinach and then squeeze to drain excess water and chop. either mix or using a blender pulse together the spinach, ricotta cheese, 2/3 of the parmesan and the egg then add in salt, pepper and dried herbs , to taste.

  4. Put part of the stuffing in the centre of the circle and form a ring around that with the rest of the stuffing then top with remaining parmesan and a sprinkle of breadcrumbs ( to help soak up liquid so the pastry doesn’t go soggy).

  5. Place the second circle of dough over top and, using a small bowl, create centre of sun then use a fork to prick around the sides of the bowl.

  6. Brush the outside of the dough with water ( this will help them stick together) and then seal the two pastry layers with a fork.

  7. Chill for 20 minutes ( this will make it easier to shape the sun ‘rays’).
  8. Remove from fridge and preheat oven to 180.
  9. Brush pastry with an egg wash ( good to do now as it will be tricky to do later once twisted)
