Reuben Hand Pies Recipe

How to Make Reuben Hand Pies


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (or 180°C fan-forced). Lightly spray baking tray with cooking oil.
  2. Combine mayonnaise and paprika in a large bowl and mix well.
  3. Add the pastrami (or silverside), pickled cabbage and the sliced cheese to the bowl and stir well to combine.
  4. Lay out puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Cut each sheet into 2 large triangles. Place pastrami mix between 6 triangles evenly. Fold the sheet over to form a triangle and then pinch the sheet together to form a tight seal all the way around.
  5. Once sealed, you can create a decorative crimped edge in a wave by pinching the dough between your fingers or use a fork to press the edges together.
  6. Brush with egg wash and scatter with sesame seeds over top of pies. Transfer pies to lined baking trays.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden and crisp.
  8. Serve warm pies with mustard and pickles.
