Spoon some of the cheese and potato mixture on one half, dampen the edges with egg wash, place another piece of pastry over and seal edges
Place the pasties on the prepared baking trays/sheets and brush the beaten egg over to glaze.
Snip or cut the pasty tops to make 2 or 3 slits to allow the steam to escape and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and crispy.
Can be frozen before baking.
Any leftover filing can be kept in the fridge for 2 to 3 days and be used again.
