How to Make Cheesy Beef Pull-Apart Sunshine Pie

  1. For the filling:

    Add the beef, mozzarella, spinach, egg, and ricotta to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix.

  2. Place one puff pastry sheet on parchment paper. Use about 2/3 of the beef mixture to make a long roll. Form a circle using the roll and place it on the pastry sheet.
  3. Form the remaining beef mixture into a meatball. Place it in the middle of the pastry sheet.
  4. Add the second pastry sheet on top. Place a small or medium upturned cup in the middle and press it gently. Seal the edges by pressing the pastry with a fork.
  5. Make radial cuts beginning from the upturned cup’s rim. Twist each “ray” of this pastry “sun” once in the same direction.
  6. Poke holes into the center of the pie using a fork. Coat the pie with whisked egg, then garnish with chili flakes. Bake for 45 minutes at 380⁰F/190⁰C.
