I’ve had these witches hats on my mind to do for months now. I’ve been so excited to make them and to see the outcome BUT one thing was annoying me, I was proper struggling to know what to put in the middle of them.
So after a long old think, I came to the conclusion that I’ve shared a ton of sweet treats the last few months, maybe it was time to do something savoury. As let’s be honest, a savoury pastry is blooming yummy!
So, my mind instantly went to cheese & onion. Cheese & onion is a favourite combination of mine when it comes to savoury snacks, you cannot go wrong when pairing them together.
And let’s get real, sprinkling some cheese and dicing some onion isn’t that hard to do so I loved the idea of how easy these hats would be to make. Nothing too complicated and super quick to make, perfect… right?
So if you’d like to make these yourself, the recipe is below:
Category: Savoury Snack
Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 Minutes
Overall Time: 45 Minutes
Ingredients You Need:
- 2 Ready-To-Roll Puff Pastry
- Bag Of Mature Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Onion, Diced
- Dash Of Milk
How To Make Witches Hats:
- Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients, line two baking trays with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 180C / 160C Fan / Gas Mark 4.
- Secondly, take your ready-to-roll puff pastries out the fridge and out their packaging and allow to sit for 10 minutes before use.
- Whilst your pastry is sitting, on a piece of paper, draw and cut out a witches hat shape so you have a stencil to use when cutting the pastry (you can do this freehand of course, I just felt more confident having a stencil).
- Once the 10 minutes is up, roll out the pastry (TIP: if there’s any tears whilst rolling out the pastry, wet your fingertips and lightly push back together).
- Place your stencil onto the pastry and cut round the edges, placing 6 of the cut out witches hats onto your prepared baking tray (the other 6 coffins leave on the side until assembling the hats together).
- Continue to do this until you’ve used up the pastry.
- In the centre of the witches hats, sprinkle cheese and the diced onion, making sure you leave the edges of the pastry free so the cheese doesn’t ooze out.
- Once you’ve placed the fillings in the centre, carefully place the remaining witches hats (which were left on the side) on top of the filling.
- Using a fork, press together the edges of the top and bottom witches hats to seal them together.
- Next, brush the milk over the top of the sealed witches hats.
- Place the witches hats into the oven for around 20-25 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool down on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
That’s your Cheese & Onion Witches Hats prepared, baked and ready for you to enjoy!
How good did these turn out?! I think these will look super cool on a Halloween party table if your hosting this year or to give out as a Halloween treat at lunch time.
Let me know if you end up making these yourself and if you do, what your thoughts were on them. Are these or are these not the best kind of savoury treats?
Sending you all tons of love & hugs as always,
