Cheesy Leek and Potato Pasties

Apparently Lex likes these. Who knew… Which means I will be making them a bit more often as a result. He seems to prefer the pastry element more than the filling so all the more for me mwahahahah…

For 12 or so individual pasties you need:
500g pastry made from 250g plain flour and 250g butter
2 leeks, sliced
1 onion, diced
450g potatoes, peeled, diced and par boiled for 4-5 mins till tender
1 tsp each fresh thyme, oregano, rosemary and sage; chopped
25g butter
salt and pepper
150g cheddar, half grated and half chopped into cubes
1 egg and a little milk for egg wash

Begin by making the pastry and leaving to rest. Meanhile saute the leeks, onion, herbs and butter for 20 mins or so in a lidded pan. Cut out large circles of the pastry and fill with a tbsp of the filling in the middle of each. Either fold over or cut out more circles for the tops. Crimp, brush with egg glaze and stab in a few steam holes. Bake in a hot oven for 20-30 mins till golden brown. Serve hot or cold.
