“This recipe is from the Pampas Pastry website. It passes the Susan test for a five star recipe - easy, delicious and looks good too! These pies freeze well. Prepare up to the baking stage, then freeze. Cook from frozen on the day they are required. Hope you enjoy your Aussie Meat Pie - maybe enhanced with a glass of Coonawarra red! Edited to add - some grated/shredded cheese could be added to the mince mixture to make a cheese and mince pie, as per Perfect Pixie's review - great idea - thanks PP!”
