These savory little pastries are traditionally deep fried, and you may certainly do that with this recipe, but my baked version is much lighter and waistline-friendly.

Directions

Combine the leeks, oil, salt, and cayenne in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Roll the pastry dough out and cut 4-inch (10 cm) rounds.

Place about 2 tsp. (10 ml) of the leek mixture in the center of each round, moisten the edges of the dough with water, fold over the filling, and press the edges together forming a semi-circle. Using the edge of a small spoon or sewing thimble (traditional), press crescent shapes into the edge of the pastry. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown on both sides, or bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until the pastry is golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.
