Mini Meat Pies

 Untitled  facebookzinstagramzpinterestz

Who doesn’t love mini meat pies? They are so quick and easy to make at home.

I use puff pastry for both the base and lids to these, however you can use shortcrust for the bases and puff pastry for the lids. I use store bought pastry but your EDC has great recipes for these.

I don’t add vegetables to this mixture as I serve these with a side of salad or steamed vegetables. Peas would be a lovely additional to the mince mixture.

    I didn’t have much luck with this one unfortunately, my mince mixture was so watery. I had to strain it. Double checked, i put in correct water and the cornflour mixed with the set aside stock water. Any other ideas why that may have been?
