Deliciously heart-warming and filled with nostalgic memories. Every year when our Muslim community celebrates Eid, I'm reminded of the joy felt when we received barakat (translation: blessings) from our Muslim neighbours and friends. This was usually a plate filled with the most delicious food and treats. Butter biscuits, sweet pastries and my absolute favourite, savoury mince pies, with the "must-have" ingredient, boiled eggs.
They are best when made with puff pastry. I use the store-bought variety. It's not only convenient and easy, but this lighter pastry also lends itself well to this particular pie. On the odd occasion, I'll use my old-fashioned butter pastry, as I did with the pie in this image.
Serve with dauphinoise potatoes and a green salad.
