METHOD

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 200oC (392F).
  • 2 Unfold the pastry and with a pastry cutter cut 8 x 10cm (3.94”) circles.
  • 3 Score a smaller circle into the pastry, approx. 1.5cm (0.4”) from the cut edge with a 6cm (2.36”) pastry cutter, being careful not to score all the way through the pastry.
  • 4 Take half the egg and beat it then brush the surface of the pastry with the egg wash.
  • 5 Bake for approx. 8 -10 minutes until well risen and LIGHT golden in colour.
  • 6 Meanwhile combine the mascarpone with the date syrup and season with salt and pepper.
  • 7 Remove from oven and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes.
  • 8 Meanwhile combine 40g (1.41oz) of egg with the 40g (1.41oz) smokey sprinkles.
  • 9 Carefully push the centre of the pastry down and flatten, so that the edge forms a rim to the pastry. You may need to use the sharp point of a knife to achieve this.
  • 10 Spread the egg & smokey sprinkles around the edge of the pastry.
  • 11 Place a couple of slices of the freeze-dried beetroot at the bottom of each pastry.
  • 12 Divide the mascarpone/date syrup mix between the 8 pastries and top with more beetroot slices.
  • 13 Place back in the oven and cook for a further 6-10 minutes until golden and the egg & smokey sprinkles have set and crisped.
