So last night i made a pie. I didn’t go with the 7 hour Maggie Beer recipe that I first considered but made up my own recipe and cooked the meat for a measly 3 hours! haha, it fell apart at the touch so i say it was perfect. Also made my own shortcrust pastry for the base and had my first attempt at a rough puff for the lid. They rested in the fridge over night, as maggies recipe stated and have just come out of the oven.
my puff worked! not a good picture but i was too excited to eat these little beauties!
