1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small leek chopped
150g butternut squash, diced
200g brown mushrooms, diced
150g baby spinach
1 clove garlic, crushed
50g cheddar, grated
2 tablespoons pesto
320g packet ready rolled puff pastry
1 egg, beaten


  1. Pre heat the oven to 180 Fan on the Airfry position.
  2. You will need a non stick baking sheet.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the leek and squash and fry for 5 minutes. Add
    the mushrooms and fry over a high heat until the liquid has come out of the mushrooms.
    Add the garlic and spinach and continue to cook until the spinach has wilted, and any liquid
    has evaporated. Spoon into a bowl and leave to cool.
  4. Add the cheese and pesto to the bowl and season.
  5. Unroll the pastry. Roll out so the pastry is bigger to roughly 40cm long. Divide the sheet into
    4 rectangles.
  6. Spoon 1/4 of the mixture into the centre of one piece of pastry, leaving a gap around the
    fillings and at each end. Brush the beaten egg around the filling. Roll up tightly and turn
    upside down, so the seal is underneath. Repeat with the remaining sheets and filling.
  7. Pinch the pastry together either side of the filling to make a cracker shape. Press down and
    trim off the ends to make a neat edge. Knead any trimmings together and roil out again.
    Stamp out starts using a star cutter.
  8. Brush with beaten egg and stick a star on top and glaze with egg wash.
  9. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is golden brown.
