2. Remove the lid from the pan or wok, slightly raise the heat and let any liquid evaporate. Add the anchovies, garlic and salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute more. Remove the pan or wok from the heat, stir in the raisins and pine nuts, and set aside to cool.

4. Using a 7.5cm/3in plain pastry cutter, cut out 20 rounds, re-rolling the dough as necessary. Place two teaspoons of the filling in the middle of each, then brush the edges with a little water.
5. Bring up the sides of the pastry and press the edges together to seal. Brush with some beaten egg. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden.
