Roll out the short crust pastry on a lightly floured surface until about 4mm thickness, roll out the puff pastry a little thinner and place on top,  cut into 4 x 18cm circles. Turn the circles upside down so that the puff pastry is at the bottom. •    Place the turkey, stuffing and chipolatas into a bowl. Add the cranberry sauce and mix. Spoon the turkey mixture onto one half of the pastry circles. •    Dampen the edges of the pastry with the milk and fold the pasty over the filling. Crimp the edges. Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. •    Cut a slit in each pasty and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
