  • Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl.Add the salt, cubed butter and rub between your fingers till you have a breadcrumb consistency.

  • Alternatively add the flour , baking powder, salt and butter to a food processor and pulse to a breadcrumb consistency.

  • This should take less than a minute. Add the cold water to the flour to form a doughPlease don't overwork the dough. You want it crumbly, crunchy and moist, when cooked.

  • Wrap the dough in a cling film and place it in the fridge for about 45min.

  • On a floured surface, roll your pastry out and cut into 4 squares.

  • Remove the sausages from their skin and finely dice the black puddingPlace the sausages, peppers, shallots, yellow peppers, thyme and garlic in a bowl and mix well.

  • Leave the mixture for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse.

  • You can cut the rolled pastry into squares  or circles (using a medium sized bowl to cut into circles).

  • Be creative with the filling, use diced potatoes, Kale, Fish, Chicken, Turkey or meat etc (whatever you prefer).

  • Place a tablespoon of the filling in the middle of each cut pastry. Pick a corner of the pastry and fold to meet the opposite end.

  • Use your thumb or a fork to seal the ends. Use the fork to insert 3 holes on top of each pastry (as shown below). This helps the heat circulate evenly and cooks the filling perfectly.

  • Pre heat your oven to 180*c

  • Using a silicone baking sheet (alternatively you can grease a baking tray and sprinkle with flour).

  • Whisk the egg till well mixed and using a cooking brush, wash the surface with the egg. The egg wash enables the pie to brown beautifully.Bake the pie for about 10-12 minutes or until golden.

  • Serve with steamed vegetables or mixed onion and tomatoes salad.
