Sliced Spinach Pies
Baked Delicious Spinach Pie
This dish is a firm favorite with friends and family. Feta cheese, spinach & puff pastry makes a winning combination. You may prepare this dish, as hors d'oeuvres or a main dish. Making little pastries are attractive, but takes more time than simply baking a large pie.
So these days I just sandwich the filling between layers of pastry, bake and then slice them in convenient sizes. Nobody seems to mind as it is all eaten up in no time. It can be made very quickly and conveniently with ready-made puff pastry or by making your own pastry very economically.
When making your own pastry, ensure that the butter is cold & hard. When I grate the butter into the flour, I usually coat the stick of butter with flour. That way, it is better to handle the butter without it slipping and it does not get soft as easily. You also have better control of the butter. Repeat the dipping when necessary. It also helps if you keep the grater in the fridge until it feels cold.
Please note: If you have a food processor, just cut the butter, coat in flour, then pulse in food processor. The setting should be Pulse.
Add the other ingredients until dough forms a kind of rough ball. Remove, place on board, be generous with sprinkling flour on rolling pin as well. Follow directions below.
Should you wish to make smaller pies, simply adjust the recipe for your use.
Dough is rolled, then divided into 12 equal squares, Filling added, then ends of squares are twisted on top, to seal pie
For beautiful spiral rounds, shape dough into rectangle, add spinach filling, in one row, about 2" from edge, then roll. Freeze or refrigerate, if using in a short time. When dough is firm, slice & bake. Serve with drinks.
