To make pastry: beat together cream cheese and castor sugar until fluffy.

Beat in egg yolk and milk then sift in flour, a pinch of salt and baking powder.

Knead into a smooth dough.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

To make filling: place all ingredients in a food processor.
Process in short bursts until finely chopped or mix thoroughly by hand and then mash with potato masher.

Divide pastry into two and press one portion evenly onto the baking sheet.

Spoon the filling on top of pastry, smooth out evenly, and then cover with remaining pastry (you may prefer to grate the pastry dough on top of the filling).
