Bake a crisp pie lid

Bake a crisp pie lid

Make sure your scotch pie lids are nice and thin – when they are cooked they will be lovely and crispy on top of your pie.

Mixing the pie lids

Mixing the pie lids

When making your scotch pie lids, you can always use an electric mixer – pop all the ingredients in the mixing bowl and mix on slow speed for 30 seconds until combined, then high speed for 3 minutes.

Preventing splitting

Preventing splitting

Make sure you pop your pies in the oven as soon as they are filled and lidded – you don’t want them to sag or split when they are cooking.

Creating a juicy pie

Creating a juicy pie

The higher the fat content of the meat you choose for your scotch pie, the juicier/ runnier your final pie will be – if you want grease running down your chin when you bite into your pie, use a meat with 25-30% fat content.

Creating a spicy pie

Creating a spicy pie

If you like a spicy pie, add some cracked black pepper or chilli powder to your filling mixture and mix in – experiment with different ingredients.

Freezing your pies

Freezing your pies

If you want to freeze your creations, let them cool for an hour at room temperature, cover and pop in the freezer right away – remember, once you thaw them out, don’t re-freeze them.

Our satisfied customers

  • Hi all a massive thank you for the DIY pie pack Mrs Pete bought from you as part of my birthday present. I consider myself to be a reasonable cook and love nothing more than cooking for my family and seeing the pleasure it gives them. For many, many years I have attempted to make the perfect savoury pie but failed on the pastry side. We love a good helping of filling and a thin case but I just could not get it right. After nearly half a century of trying you have been my pie saviours, after coming very close to giving up (something I never like doing). Thank you once again for this brilliant product keep up the excellent work, the whole of the Pete family loves them. May your pies always be r squared. Forgive the pun. Yours piefully. Mr P Jackson, Lancs
