Easy spinach, pinenut and cream cheese pies.

Today for lunch we had delicious spinach pies. Our spinach is growing fast and furious in this unseasonally warm's a bit concerning that we have not had enough rain....

I took a packed colander of spinach, washed and chopped it... then added it to a pot with some fried onion in butter to sweat.

In the meantime I rolled out the pastry and edged it with egg.

When the spinach is cooked, drain and cool slightly. Add to it 250ml cream cheese and 125g packet of pine nuts. Mix it all together and plonk a little in the centre of each pasty square.

Seal up and brush with egg then bake until golden. Delicious.
