You need a light hand with pastry, for sure! :)

I have made lots of meat pies, and the best was with frozen puff pastry, but I am too cheap to buy that most of the time. to cut the fat alot of the time I just give it a top crust. The family doesn't mind if it means I am willing to serve more of them! I make a full batch, roll out half and put the other ball of dough in the freezer wrapped in cellophane. Then on a busy night, I pull it out in the morning and by dinner time it is ready to roll and top whatever...

Preheat the oven to 425 F. and put the pie in. After 10 minutes, turn it down to 350 F. and bake until the pastry is nicely golden, top and bottom. The filling is already cooked, so it is just a matter of getting the pastry baked to a nice golden brown. Hope this helps. I grew up learning cooking by doing so I don't often have exact recipes.

That pie looked delicious!

As for the lard not being healthy- well, we all know that "you can starve to death on a diet of only rabbit because it lacks fat", so you probably saved several lives right there! :roll:

So- when is the next pie going in the oven?

It will have to get a lot cooler than it is right now before I do any baking. It was about 84 F. today and it will be over 90 tomorrow. I know that doesn't sound so bad to a lot of you... but it's too darned hot for me.

Glad you and Peach enjoyed it! It's our favourite but I don't make it too often.

No, it's a two crust pie. You could put crust on the top only, but since this is a special occasion dish, served only a couple times a year, we splurge. :)
