Serves: Makes around 30 vol-au-vents
  • 1 roll ready prepared puff pastry (around 500g)
  • 70g walnuts (crushed)
  • 70g stilton (crumbled)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • Black pepper
  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
  2. Roll out the puff pastry and cut into around 30 6cm squares. Lay the squares on a baking sheet on a baking tray and then lightly brush them with the beaten egg.
  3. Top the middle of each square with a pinch of stilton and a pinch of crushed walnuts. The stilton will melt and spread out slightly once cooking.

  5. Leave to cool before serving.
