Ingredients

100 grams bread flour
50 grams butter
chilled
¼ teaspoon salt
to taste
½ whole egg yolks
Beaten
*
50 millilitres water
Cooled
½ teaspoons olive oil
½ teaspoon garlic

Chopped

25 grams mashed potatoes
¼ teaspoon black pepper
*
¼ teaspoon salt
To Taste
1 whole eggs
Beaten

Directions

Sift the flour. Place the flour and salt in a large bowl. Mix. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Next add approximately ½ of a beaten egg yolk and the water. Mix well your hands. Try to work quickly.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 -15 minutes.

Now take the chilled dough and roll out into a 12 inch square that is about ⅛ inch thick, using a rolling pin.

Put the greased molds onto a 12-inch square pastry sheet. (I made the duck mold out of thick paper. I covered the paper with aluminum foil. Before using a duck mold, brush it with butter or cooking spray.) Break off pieces of dough and press them into the mold - make sure the dough goes up the sides as well but make sure to leave a hollow in the middle for your filling mixture. Then trim off the excess pastry.

In a pan heat ½ table spoon olive oil over medium high heat, add garlic and sauté until slightly softened. Next add onion, salmon, and prepared (or leftover) mashed potatoes. Mix until onion is softened and everything is heated through. Add pepper and salt. Mix well.

Place your prepared filling in the pastry ˜duck' Brush the edges of the pastry with some egg wash (the reserved ½ of the beaten egg) then place additional pastry (you can use scraps that have been rolled flat) over the top and press down to seal.

Bake about 20 minutes at 200C degrees or until the crust is golden brown.

Remove from oven and let cool.

After that, you can decorate the duck shaped snack with eyes and mouth/beak. Ihave done so in the photo using food coloring for the eyes and mouth/beak.

This recipe will have enough dough and filling to make 4 duck snacks.

Serve and enjoy. see my website
