Ham And Cheese Lattice Pies
9 ounces fresh ready-made puff pastry
1/3 cup finely chopped ham
2/3 cup full-fat soft cheese
2 tbsp chopped fresh chives
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Roll out the pastry thinly on a lightly floured counter. Cut out 12 rectangles measuring 6 x 2 inches.
Place the rectangles onto greased cookie sheets and leave to chill for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the ham, cheese and chives in a small bowl. Season with pepper to taste.
Spread the ham and cheese mixture along the center of 6 of the rectangles, leaving a 1 inch border around each one. Brush the border with a little beaten egg.
To make the lattice pattern, fold the remaining rectangles lengthwise. Leaving a 1 inch border, cut vertical lines across one edge of the rectangles using a sharp knife.
Unfold the rectangles and place them over the rectangles topped with the ham and cheese mixture set on the cookie sheets. Seal the dough edges well and lightly sprinkle with the grated Parmesan cheese.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. Serve hot or cold.
