Cheese, Onion & Potato Pasties

After the success of last week's Minted Potato Pasties, and the family loving them, I decided to make some more this week. First up on the long list of fillings that we want to try, was a traditional filling of cheese, onion and potato. There will be meat fillings coming up but I started with a filling that can usually be found in the store cupboard and fridge (it was the end of the week, and we had nothing else)

Somehow I managed to set my kitchen timer wrong so they ended up a little well done, but we like them that way, honestly. I used my favourite cream cheese pastry again, and again they turned out lovely & flaky and 'just like you get from the pasty shop'.

I think pasty chips and peas are going to be a regular Friday night tea in this house now.
