50 gm pine nuts
200gm Feta cheese
200ml thickened cream
¼ cup of rice flour

Place pie on table and open Fillow pastry and crumble around 6 sheets on top of pie to decorate

Other versions of the basic Pie recipe.
This is using a much smaller 12cm diameter loose base fancy flan dish
In here I only use puff pastry for closing the spinach pie top as well baste the top with egg yolk as a glace
This is using only the Fillow Pastry, fold the pastry to 10 cm wide then fill with the spinach and fold creating triangles . Baste with egg yolk as a glace. Can be sprinkled with sesame seed.
