Biltong is already a favourite snack on its own, but add it to these delicious biltong pie pops and you have a treat the whole family will love.
MAKES 15 // COOKING TIME 45 min
¼ cup finely chopped moist biltong
¼ cup onion marmalade
1 feta wheel
500 g puff pastry
1 egg, whisked
1. Preheat oven to 180ºC.
2. Mix the chopped biltong and the onion marmalade. Crumble in the feta, season with pepper and mix.
3. On a floured surface, roll out the puff pastry to 3 mm thick. Cut it into rounds with a 7 cm biscuit cutter.
4. Press an ice-lolly stick into the centre of half of the pastry circles. Top each of these with about 1 teaspoon of biltong filling. Cover with remaining pastry rounds and seal the edges by pressing with a fork.
5. Brush the pie pops with the whisked egg and bake for 15 minutes, until golden.
