  1. Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the egg and water and knead lightly until evenly mixed. Wrap in cling film and chill
    for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat your oven to 190?C/gas mark 5.
  3. Cut the dough into 2 pieces and roll each piece into a rectangle 30 x 25 cm (12 x 10 inches).
  4. Mix together the cheese with the egg then spread the mixture over one piece of rolled pastry. Carefully spoon the plum chutney over the cheese and cover with the remaining piece of pastry.
  5. Roll gently together then cut into 12 oblong pieces approximately 2.5 x 25cm (1 x 10 inch). Twist each strip to make a spiral and place on a baking sheet.
  6. Glaze with beaten egg and sprinkle with parmesan cheese (optional). Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until golden.
  7. Serve warm or cold with cooked ham, salad and some extra chutney.
