These were such a hit! Delicious combination of sweet and salty. I prepped everything in advance, even cut the pastry in squares and kept them covered in the fridge. Baked them during the party and served straight away, and that's really when they're the best!

I fancy making these for my Husband's 40th party guests - can you eat them cold or must they be hot out of the oven?

Absolutely wonderful! Fiddly to do but well worth it. Be sure to use anchovies that have been preserved in oil - not brine or too salty. I added bits of black olive AND sun-dried tomato to them and the flavour is fabulous.

Made a batch of these for a drinks party and they went down a storm! Scoring the pastry doesn't take long and is well worth it. Have to agree with Jo about the onion mixture. I had a couple of spoonsful left and ate it stright out of the pan - delish!!!

I must mention the onion mixture on these - I could have eaten just that it was so tasty! I made these for a party but ended up with a lot more than 30 so I don't know what I did!
I did as suggested above and scored around each pastry and that worked brilliantly. I did run out of anchovies and so added some stilton on the rest and they were very popular too. Perfect party food.

Very easy to make and so tasty! Used a bottle stopper to score the pastry and it worked a treat. Also used red onion for a sweeter taste. Will make these again!

made these for a cocktail party and they were a huge hit. as others said, the filling fell off a couple of them but i tired the scoring and it worked perfectly! i didnt find it fiddly at all, very easy for a great result

Scoring definately works - to make it quicker and less fiddly, I gently pressed in a small round pasty cutter..

Delicious. If you score carefully round the edge it stops the inside rising and keeps the filling in place. A bit fiddly but worth it.

Very enjoyable - especially the anchovies. However as someone said, the pastry rose and the filling fell off some of them (much to the delight of my resident tasters!) so would appreciate further tips to avoid this.

these are fab , everyone loved them ! so easy and freeze really well.

very fiddly but worth it. used mix of sundried toms and olives which gave good contrast. be warned - takes much longer than twenty minutes. advice ref freezing is good so they can be prepared without a guest deadline looming.

These tasted delicious, but I found even after I pricked the pastry it rose up during cooking and the filling fell off.

these were a huge hit at my party even for the olive haters!

I made these and they were a huge hit at parties. I made a batch and then froze them uncooked so I could take out and cook as many as I needed at any one time. I also used red onions as I for the flavour and colour.

My Christmas party guests just couldn't get enough of these. The combination of flavours, especially the saltiness of the anchovies, provided the perfect accompaniment to "numerous beverages"."
