Recipe: Mushroom Hand Pies

These were originally supposed to be empanadas but they got a little confused along the way. They turned out delicious enough that I just called them hand pies and think you should make them anyway.

  1. 375g flour
  2. 5g salt
  3. 170g butter
  4. 1 egg
  5. 50ml water
  1. 30g butter
  2. 250g mushrooms, sliced
  3. 2 carrots, shredded
  4. 8 shallots, sliced
  5. 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  6. 125g fontina cheese, grated
  7. 1 egg, beaten
  1. Make the dough: Mix the flour and salt in a bowl, cut in the butter by hand or by pastry cutter until small balls form.
  2. Add the egg and water to flour and mix until a dough forms.
  3. Roll the dough out into a thin sheet and cut rounded discs (3") until all the dough is used.
  4. Make the filling: Melt the butter over medium heat and to it add the mushrooms, carrots, and shallots cooking for 15 minutes or until tender.
  5. Add balsamic vinegar and cook about 3 minutes then allow the mixture to cool completely.
  6. Assemble the pies: place a spoonful of the mushroom mixture and a spoonful of grated cheese at the center of the dough disc.
  7. Brush the edge of the dough with egg then fold and crimp with fingers or a fork. Repeat until all filling and dough is used.
  8. Brush the tops of each pie with egg.
  9. Bake in a 200°C oven for 20 minutes until golden.
