Karen's Mini Leek and Mushroom Pies
Time & Location
About the Event
Join the brilliant Karen Wright (GBBO Star, series 9) live from Wakefield, UK as she guides you through her recipe for Mini Leek and Mushroom Pies.
I love a savory pie; these little beauties are perfect for a picnic or a buffet and as they are made using hot water crust pastry, they are quite robust and travel well. They can of course be eaten warm as part of a main meal too so they are versatile. The pastry is made using butter so these are suitable for vegetarians but if you wish to include diced bacon or chicken in the filling that would be a great match also. This recipe makes 8.
Pastry: large mixing bowl, wooden spoon, medium saucepan, rolling pin, 3.5cm round cutter, 3cm round cutter, clean tea towel, pastry brush. 8 strips of baking paper about 2cm wide x 10cm long. Cupcake tin, baking tray.
