The filling was very easy to make. I didn’t have a lemon around so I used orange zest and squeezed the juice out to mix in with the sherry. The pastry was pretty simple too but even though I put in less than half of the milk it called for was pretty sticky. I had to put it in the fridge for an hour or so to harden up a little and flour everything well. Even then it wasn’t the easiest to work with and rolling it out was a little annoying.
As soon as they were onto the baking sheets it was back to being a very straight forward and easy recipe.
They took a pretty long time in the oven. I’m starting to think the thermostat might be wrong. I should get an oven thermometer and check it out I think. The slightly over damp dough wouldn’t have helped.
