How to make a Tuna Hand Pie

This is a really simple and delicious recipe. Keep the puff pastry thawed, but cold until ready to use. You can use up whatever cheese or other ingredients you may have on hand, this recipe is very versatile.

2 cans tuna, drained
1 pkg. thawed, but still chilled puff pastry
1 cup cream
1 can corn
11/2 cups frozen peas
1 large onion, caramelized
1-2 large cloves of garlic chopped
1 tsp horseradish
1 TBSP mustard
Fresh Dill 
1 Cup of shredded cheese (cheddar & feta or your preference)
2 TBSP flour
2 TBSP butter
salt and pepper

1 lightly beaten egg & 1/4 cup milk for an egg wash for the pastry

In a large skillet melt the butter, add onions and garlic and sautee for a few minutes. Lower the heat. Add the flour and stir and cook for about two minutes. Add a small amount of cream and stir constantly. Keep adding the cream and stirring constantly so you don't have any lumps.
Add corn, peas, tuna, salt, pepper, mustard, horseradish, cheese, dill and mix well. Taste adjust seasoning accordingly.

Roll out the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface and cut into 3-4 pieces to make four pies. Put a dollop of the filling into the centre of the pastry and fold over and seal the edge. Brush pastry with egg wash and put into a pre-heated 400 F oven for 25 minutes. Garnish with some fresh dill and serve.
