  • 100 ml red wine

Step 6

Top with the remaining pastry sheet. Lightly crimp the edges together, then press with a fork, if desired. Make 3 or 4 small knife pricks in the top sheet to allow for any steam to escape.

Step 7

Brush top with the beaten egg and bake at 180°C fan forced for 45 minutes or until golden and crisp all over.
