Put the squash, onion and spices into a roasting tin and cook in a medium oven – gas 5/180’c for 30 minutes or until the squash has softened.

Once the mixture has cooled use a slotted spoon to transfer it to a mixing bowl and stir in the sour cream.

Cut the pastry to size using a pastry cutter, place in muffin tins and then bake blind for 15 minutes at gas 5/180’c. Set aside to on a wire rack cool down.
