These present an absolutely addictive and intriguing blend of flavours! Unlikely sounding, but delicious! Cooking time includes chilling time. If you want to freeze them, freeze uncooked seperately the filling and pastry. When defrosting, you don't need to defrost the filling, but definitely defrost the pastry or you won't be able to fold it! You might like to have it already cut in circles before freezing for convenience. You might need to bake a little longer - I didn't, but I have a fan-forced oven.
