One gorgeous present my daughter received for her birthday was a "Cook with Dora" set.
I let her choose a recipe for us to cook together.
Not a bad choice hey.
First we made pastry by crumbling butter with flour, then adding cold water to bring it together.
While the pastry rested we headed off to the garden to pick some fresh herbs for our filling.
The filling called for cooked chicken so I diced up a chicken breast and browned it before deglazing with white wine. I reduced the juices down to make a tasty sauce for our filling.
The chicken was mixed with the sauce, some grated cheese and our freshly picked oregano and parsley.
The circles of pastry are filled with some filling and sealed with egg wash.
Evie loves 'painting' with the egg wash!
And while they were baking we made a strawberry banana smoothie.
They were delicious, though a little more browning would have been nicer - I had hungry tummy's waiting for them to be cooked.
