Mix the beef and pork
With the carrots, onion, parsley, marjoram, salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Stir in the brandy,
Cover and chill overnight.
To make the pastry,
Melt the butter
, then set aside to cool for a few minutes.
Put the flour in a large bowl and stir in the salt.
Beat the egg and egg yolk with the water in a separate bowl.
Stir the eggs and water into the flour, then gradually add the melted butter and form into a ball.
Put this in a bowl
And leave to rest for 2 hours.
Divide the pastry
Into 6 portions and roll them out into rectangles measuring about 18 x 20cm. Trim them neatly
And keep the trimmings to make pastry chimneys.
Divide the ground meat mixture into 6 sausage shapes
And place 1 sausage in the centre of each piece of pastry.
Brush the edges lightly with beaten egg.
Fold up the 2 short sides of the pastry and then bring the long sides up
And over the filling to enclose and fully seal the meat inside.
Turn the parcel over,
With the edges underneath, and place it on a baking tray lined with baking parchment.
Very lightly score the pastry with the point of a sharp knife
Don’t go too deep
Or the pastry will split when it bakes. Repeat with the remaining filling and pastry.
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Using the point of a knife,
Make a small hole in the centre of each parcel
And enlarge the hole with the tip of your little finger.
Roll out the pastry trimmings and cut into strips about 1.5cm wide.
Roll these around your little finger,
Then place a rolled strip in each hole to make a ‘chimney’,
Rising roughly 1cm out of the pastry. Brush generously with beaten egg
And bake for 45 minutes.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
Put the gelatine sheets in a bowl of cold water
And leave them for 5 minutes until softened,
Then squeeze out the excess water over the sink.
Heat the wine very gently until just warm enough to melt the gelatine,
Plop the squeezed gelatine sheets into the warm wine
And stir until dissolved.
Transfer the mixture to a jug and leave to cool.
Put a small plastic funnel in one of the pastry ‘chimneys’
And pour the wine into the pie.
Take it slowly and let the wine find its way through the pie for a few seconds before adding more.
Stop when the wine reaches halfway up the chimney.
Repeat with all the pies.
Put in the fridge and leave to set for at least 3 hours.
