Please tell me,what am I doing wrong. Bought the pie maker just before Xmas,have just had my second go and followed the instructions to the letter,but the base of the pie just isn't cooking.top looks great,but base of pastry is not cooked at all,ended up putting pies upside down in the oven for about 10 mins, they are edible and look good, but please tell me why the base isn't cooking.
A note from the team
Thanks for placing your review. A colleague who uses the machine thinks the problem may be too thick base pastry, but take care not to make it too thin. Also another customer offers these two tips to help:while it's heating up make sure your filling is close to hand and all your pastry discs cut out. Then quickly lay all 4 larger ones over the holes, then push them all down. Fill, top and close . For making your own pastry - 400g flour and 200g fat (half butter half Trex works very well) plus whatever liquid you use to bind it will make 12 pies. Dice fat, mix with flour and freeze for 10 mins before blending them. We'll be in touch shortly to help.
