Stir in the 1 x 15 ml (1 tablespoon) of flour, followed by the stock, mint and seasonings, and bring to the boil for 2 minutes.

Sieve the 200 g (8 oz) flour and a pinch of salt into a bowl, add the fats and rub in until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Roll out the remaining pastry and cut into about 28 4 cm (1 1/2 in) rounds.
Brush with milk and place in overlapping circles all over the filling to make a lid.
Glaze again with milk and cook in a hot oven for 20 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to moderate and cook for a further 20 to 30 minutes, until browned.
