    Insert the pie in to the oven and cook for five minutes. Reduce the oven's heat to 177 degrees Celsius.

Tips and warnings

  • If your oven is causing the edges of the pastry to burn, cover them with a strip of tinfoil.
  • Store meat pies in the freezer for only two to four months.
  • Do not attempt to reheat the pie in the microwave as this causes the pastry to become soggy.
