Curd Cheese Pastries

  • 8 oz. Wholemeal or wholewheat shortcrust pastry
  • 8 oz. Curd cheese
  • 1 oz. Very finely chopped stem or crystallized ginger or plump raisins
  • 1/2 oz. Toasted and chopped pine nuts
  • Sugar to taste
  • Lemon juice to taste image placeholder

Roll the pastry out very thin and cut it into small rectangles- approximately 6 x 3 inches. You should have at least 24. Bake them in a moderately hot oven 375 for ten minutes or till they are crisp and brown. Remove them and cool on a rack. Meanwhile mix the curd cheese with the ginger or raisins, the pine nutes and the sugar and lemon to taste.

Set aside. When you are ready to serve, sandwich together two pieces of pastry with the cheese mixture. They can be used as a dessert or as a snack.
