Method

30-40 minutes
 

Preheat the oven to 200 °C.

1. Pastry mix the flour and salt. Sift a little of the flour mixture into a bowl and grate a little butter on top. Repeat the layers to evenly distribute the butter and flour. Whisk together the egg yolk and iced water. Sprinkle the mixture over the flour mixture and rub in gently. Add the lemon juice to the boiling water and rapidly slice into the flour mixture with a knife to make a fairly slack dough. Chill overnight in the fridge or put in the freezer until ice cold but still manageable. On a floured surface roll out the pastry to a thickness of 5 mm. Fold it in thirds and set aside to cool.

2. Roll out the pastry to a thickness of 4 mm.

3. Put an upturned plate on the pastry and cut out a circle. Gather the remaining pastry, roll out and cut out another circle. Put the pastry circles on a baking sheet.

4. Filling mix all the ingredients except the egg yolk and spoon the mixture on top of the pastry circles, leaving a 3 cm edge all the way around.

5. Fold the pastry edge over the filling and brush with the egg yolk mixture. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the pastry is golden and done. Serve lukewarm with cream.
