Method

  1. Add the potato to a pan of boiling water and cook until soft enough to mash. Drain well, put back in the pan and dry off over a low heat. Add the peas and butter and mash together. Stir in the chopped spring onions and mint. Leave to cool.
  2. Set the oven to gas mark 6 or 200°C. Brush each pastry sheet lightly with melted butter, then cut in half lengthways. Place a tablespoon of filling at the near end of each strip, fold in the edges, then roll them up like a parcel.
  3. Place on baking sheets. Brush with melted butter and bake for 25-30 mins. Serve warm, with a chive tied round each one.
