Broccoli, Blue Cheese and Walnut Hand Pies are a great savoury on-the-go snack. They also just happen to be the ideal size for the lunchbox, making them the perfect portable lunch.
1. I have steamed the broccoli the day before, which speeds up the process. You could also use frozen broccoli.
2. The pastry should remain cold at all times or it will become sticky and difficult to work with. Continue to lightly dust the bench and the surface of the pastry as required, but try to limit the amount of flour used. If at any time the pastry starts to get sticky and difficult to roll, put it on a tray and place in the fridge or freezer until it feels cool to the touch.
