Ingredients

For 12 Standard Shells Or 22 Small Shells Or 6 Standard Shells and 12 Small Shells

120g Plain Flour

30g Vegetable oil, Margarine, Butter or Lard (at room temperature)

A pinch salt (about 1 or 2 grams)

45ml water

A rolling pin

Flour for dusting

Pastry cutters (85-90mm for standard shells, 65-70mm for small shells)

Method

The following method will make some great scotch pie lids, but if you’re in a rush, roll out some puff pastry really thin and cut out your lids – they’ll do a great job too!

1. Place the flour, salt and fat into a mixing bowl and mix together for about 30 seconds

2. Add the water and mix together until you have one piece of dough.

3. Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour and knead the dough for about 5 minutes – this will give you an excellent arm workout!

4. Dust your work surface with flour again and begin rolling out the dough gently in all directions – the most important thing to achieve here is that the dough is thin!

5. Once the dough is about 2mm thick, start cutting out your lids.

To make your Scotch Pies with that traditional look, cut a 5mm hole right in the middle of your lids.



Our satisfied customers

  • Wow!!! What a fabulous product you have, made 12 Scotch Pies this morning (6 mince & 6 mince & onion). They are amazing. Recipe was really easy to follow. The smell in the kitchen was mouth-watering, so we had to try one as it came out of the oven. The seasoning is spot on, really spicy (just how we like it)...wow, what a beautiful pepperiness you get from the Gravy Mix...Once again thank you for introducing us to such a brilliant product. Mr and Mrs Ward, Ladybank

  • Brilliant!! No other word for them. Get them sent over to Canada as soon as one lot are finished. Very friendly when you call. The instructions to make, awesome, we actually add a little onion and of course put two holes in the lids. As they say on TV don't wait order now.
