Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) vegetable oil
  • ½ red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ lb (225 g) ground pork
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) country pate (see recipe)
  • ½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt
  • ¼ tsp (2 ml) white pepper
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) Cognac
  • ½ tsp (2.5 ml) sugar
  • 2 packages of frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 eggs, beaten, for egg wash

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C).

  7. Lay the puff pastry out on a lightly floured surface.
  8. Using a pastry cutter, cut circles out of the dough.

  10. Place a second circle of dough over the top.
  11. Use a fork to crimp the edges of each pastry.
