"A bit like the curate's egg...."
05 December 2013
I read several reviews before purchasing the pie maker and have used mine once - am trying again today. I agree that the size is a little disappointing with quite a lot of pastry to filling and this time I'm going to try cooking the pies from cold. My biggest disappointment though is that the instructions say not to use sweet shortcrust pastry - I like to use some form of enriched pastry for sweet recipes. Has anyone tried that please? I too would have liked a slightly bigger pie - I considered exchanging for the mini pie make but guess that would be too small.
A note from the team
Thanks for placing your review.The instructions say that sweet shortcrust pastry should not be used for the base. You can have sweet contents and a sweet shortcrust lid of the pie.We hope that helps.
