If you've ever wanted to make puff pastry from scratch - we have the perfect recipe for you to try! We also have hundreds of savoury pie and sweet tart recipes, sausage rolls and pastries that use ready-made puff pastry.
Chicken pie has always been a favourite of mine. From the cheap frozen ones I ate as a child to this: a creamy version with mushrooms and leeks, topped with puff pastry. I suppose that actually makes it a pot pie, the fact that it just has a pastry topping and no bottom. What's in a name though: it's still delicious.
This hearty chicken pie is perfect any day of the week. Flaky puff pastry encases a delicious filling made with chicken and leeks in a creamy sauce.
A super-delicious pie, which is simple to make. Mushrooms with lashings of gravy are hidden under a flaky pastry lid. For more flavour, try fancy mushrooms, such as shiitake or chanterelles.
Chicken breast stuffed with a delicious garlic butter, wrapped in puff pastry and served on top of a mouth watering creamy garlic sauce. Not suggested as a dinner for first dates!!
This pie is ABSOLUTELY the best meat pie I have ever had in my life! This recipe was found whilst I was on the train and found that somebody left it on the seat. So I took it. Then I made it. Thank you to who ever left it on the train! Sometimes, I just make the stew and serve with mashed spuds.
This cashew nut roast is an easy and really delicious vegetarian main course that serves four generously.
We eat this steak pie every Hogmanay night and New Year's Day. The meat is so tender it just falls apart and the gravy is beautifully rich, the trick is in the slow cooking. We always need to plan to make enough for seconds when we have guests round for dinner! If you don't have the time to cook it for so long and leave overnight you can easily make the recipe in one go in an hour and a half
These mini quiches are so quick and easy you could get your little one to help you. They are great for entertaining, for kids' parties and as a snack and also great for school lunch boxes and can be whipped up in no time! If you don't have puff pastry I have made these without and they still come out really good.
Light and flaky, these tarts are easy to make and easy to reheat. Just wrap loosely in foil and heat at 180 C for 10 to 15 minutes, or until warm.
I've been making this pie for years, I use shop brought pastry as it is much easier than making it from scratch.
