WHAT TO DO

For the EOI wholemeal premium pie bottom pastry

Use the dough hook on low speed. Rub together Group 1 until EOI Vegetable Duo or EOI Duo is well distributed.
Add Group 2 and mix well to a clear dough
Add Group 3 and mix to a smooth dough

For the EOI wholemeal puff pastry rolled in (pie top)
The consistency of EOI Perfex or EOI Pastrex after working should be taken as a guide in making up the dough. It is important that EOI Perfex or EOI Pastrex and dough are the same consistency. After the dough had rested and recovered for a few minutes roll it out into a square shape about 45cm x 45cm x 2cm thick.
Place the EOI Perfex or EOI Pastrex in the centre and fold the edges over, so that EOI Perfex or EOI Pastrex is completely enclosed.
Press down and ensure that the EOI Perfex or EOI Pastrex is evenly distributed between the two dough layers. Now proceed to roll the dough to about 12mm thickness and about twice as long as broad, brush free from flour and give the first half-turn.
Immediately give the second half-turn and allow to rest until recovered. Then give two more half-turns and allow to rest for about 10-15 minutes. After a further two half-turns (making six in all) the pastry will need to rest for 10-15 minutes before rolling and cutting out.

Baking: 230°C

Notes
Freezing: Wholemeal Puff pastry – rolled in is suitable for freezing in a baked or unbaked condition.
Point of Importance: Adjust level of water in Group 1 depending on flour strength.
Rolled In: A wide variety of lines is obtained from this dough. Full puff paste is recommended where good bulk and light flaky lines are required.
Recipe uses either: EOI Perfex or EOI Pastrex

For the pie filling
Divide Group 1 Pie Filling ingredients over 28 pies. Place inside the pie casing with the following order: Sliced pastrami (approx. 25g per pie) and Swiss cheese (approx. 15g per pie).

For the Russian sauce
Melt the EOI Sovereign, add the flour and mix until combined, over heat.
Whisk in milk and whisk until combined, thickened and starting to boil.
Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients and combine.
Divide the sauce over 28 pies (approx. 15g per pie) by placing it on top of the Group 1 fillings.
Bake at 180˚C for 25 minutes or until baked.
Divide Group 2 over 28 pies (approx. 15g per pie) place sauerkraut on top of the sauce, then top with pastry.

Notes:

Tip: Whole pastry works well with this pie.
Traditionally a Reuben sandwich is served in rye bread.

Points of Importance: Once cooled, fill pie bottom pastry as normal and top with puff pastry, egg wash and then punch a vent hole in the top of the pie.

Baking: 180°C for 25 minutes

Make up Procedure: Line, fill and top pies in the normal manner.
