** Important **

When using fresh vegetables and herbs, make sure they are washed thoroughly and drained.

To make the cheese filling: Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

To make the pastry: Combine butter, oil and water in bowl. Add sifted flour, 1tbs at a time, stirring to a smooth paste between additions. Continue adding the flour until a soft dough is formed. Turn dough onto floured surface, knead gently until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Divide pastry in half; roll each half between sheets of cling film until very thin. Use a cutter or teacup. Cut circles from the pastry (you can make them bigger if you like) Drop 1 tsp of filling into the centre of each circle. Fold over and pinch edges together to seal. Place pastries on greased oven trays and brush with egg. Bake in a moderately hot oven for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
