These Cornualles pies persecute me for many years. When it went to study to England summers already enjoyed much of its bakeries, which is hiding in my opinion, some of the best examples of the British cuisine.

On weekends, and the days that had no class in the afternoon, I took the opportunity to leave and enjoyed a day of adventure out of Little Neston, was going to the bakery in the village to buy something to eat: a sausage roll (puff pastry with sausage) and a Cornish pasty or empanadas of Cornwall I accompanied on the route of bus that I separated from Liverpool, Chester or Manchester.

These pies of Cornwall are large empanadas so much, growing and very easy to make. They all like and it has a very mild flavor and so serve you for a picnic in the field than for a first home or for a return to home after a party outlet, when stomach looking for something strong but soft sleeping. At home do not last anything because everyone pinches them when they are in the kitchen and I hope that you are also a success.

And how it could be otherwise, bring it you in the form of videoreceta through my channel of YouTube. I hope you enjoy it, I encourage you to give the 'like', you suscribáis you to my channel to be the last, but above all I hope that I relate to that you seem to improve everything it can.

2. in a bowl, mix the butter with the flour until blended. Add the water and mix well. Knead until a soft and uniform mass and put in the refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes to rest. To my I like to stand it already stretched between two roles of baking. So we divide dough into 4 parts and stretch it with help of a roll between two baking or enharinando roll so that the dough does not stick. Let stand in the refrigerator.

3. While the dough rests to prepare vegetables. Cut turnip into very thin slices. The potatoes into small cubes and very chopped onion.

4. in a bowl, mix the meat with salt, pepper and mustard powder.

5. Remove the dough from the fridge and fill the empanadas. To do this, 'put filling on only one half of the dough. We will start with a layer of turnip, then another layer of chopped onion, then the diced potatoes and finally a layer of minced meat. Fold half of the unfilled dough over the half with filling and carefully close it forming an empanada. With the tip of a knife make a cut in the top that will help the steam to escape during the cooking in the oven.
