Homemade Pasties are the best!

This Christmas brought a lot of excellent presents, one of the best (and I can say this as I bought it – ha!) was the new book from the Hairy Bikers, or the Dirty Bikers as Andy insists on calling them. It is called “The Hairy Bikers’ Perfect Pies: The Ultimate Pie Bible from the Kings of Pies” and is very very awesome.

Not content with just the average pie recipe, they have savoury pies, sweet pies, potato topped pies, canapies (!) but the best category is that of hand held pie. This week, we had a go at making the humble pasty; shortcrust with a lamb and beef filling. These aren’t the best photos but the tasty goodness didn’t last long enough to take any nice ones!

So far, I can’t recomend the bikers pie book enough and so this weekend I’m planning another pie baking session, but maybe also a kinect fitness hour to balance things out 🙂
