Butternut Squash, Goat Cheese, and Sage Pastry



Pastry (pastry recipe from smitten kitchen Smitten Kitten)


  1. Make pastry: In a bowl, combine the flour and salt. Place the butter in another bowl. Place both bowls in the freezer for 1 hour. Remove the bowls from the freezer and make a well in the center of the flour. Add the butter to the well and, using a pastry blender, cut it in until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Make another well in the center. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, lemon juice and water and this mixture to the well. With your fingertips or a spoon, combine the liquid and flour mixtures until large clumps form. Keep stirring until all of the flour is moistened. Dump mixture out onto a piece of plastic wrap. Pat the clumps and any extra craggy pieces into a ball, working the dough as little as possible. Wrap with the plastic, pat it into a thick disc, and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  2.  Preheat oven to 400 f
  3. Peel and take out the seeds of the butternut squash. Cut into small 1/2 inch cubes. Place on a cooking sheet with parchment paper. Drizzle 1 tablespoon over avocado oil, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and salt to taste. Bake for 35 minutes. Check half way through to flip and move around to cook evenly.
  4. Dice up the sage and mince the garlic. In a small pan over medium heat add a teaspoon of avocado oil. Add sage and garlic and cook until the garlic is a light golden brown. Set a side.
  5. Preheat oven to 350f
  6. Lightly flour your surface and roll the dough out. about 2 cm thick. Cut out squares, rectangles, or circles (whatever you prefer). Should make about 8 pairs.
  7. Place the cut dough onto a cooking sheet with parchment paper and add about 6 butternut squash cubes, as much goat cheese as your heart desires, and sprinkle the sage and garlic seasoning. Add the dough on top and pinch close with a fork all around the edges. Repeat this for all the pastries.
  8. Scramble your egg in a dish and brush the egg on top of each sealed pastry. Slice 4 slits in the top of the dough and sprinkle any extra sage and garlic seasoning on top.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes
  10. Enjoy!
