• 1 tsp of dried thyme

In a mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, and lard and mix until combined.
Next add in the water and knead until you form a dough. Once done, cover and leave to one side until needed.
In a separate bowl, add your pork mince, JAZZ™ apple, salt, pepper and thyme, and mix until well combined.
Take your pastry and roll out to about 3mm thick. Cut into 12 circles use the rim of a mug.
Add a generous amount of JAZZ™ apple pork filling into the base of six of the circles but don’t over fill. Next, top the pastry with the remaining six circles and seal around the edges using your fingers.
Brush the top of each pork pie with egg wash and place in the oven for about 40 to 45 minutes at 180 until golden brown.
