A pie is a baked dish which is usually made of a pastry dough casing that covers or completely contains a filling of various sweet or savoury ingredients. Sweet pies may be filled with fruit (as in an apple pie), nuts (pecan pie), brown sugar (sugar pie) or sweetened vegetables (rhubarb pie). Savoury pies may be filled with meat (as in a steak pie or a Jamaican patty), eggs and cheese (quiche) or a mixture of meat and vegetables (pot pie).
Pies are defined by their crusts. A filled pie (also single-crust or bottom-crust), has pastry lining the baking dish, and the filling is placed on top of the pastry but left open. A top-crust pie has the filling in the bottom of the dish and is covered with a pastry or other covering before baking. A two-crust pie has the filling completely enclosed in the pastry shell. Shortcrust pastry is a typical kind of pastry used for pie crusts, but many things can be used, including baking powder biscuits, mashed potatoes, and crumbs.
Pies can be a variety of sizes, ranging from bite-size to ones designed for multiple servings.
Banoffee pie: A sweet caramel and banana creation, well suited to a anniversary confection, which is exactly what this was made for.
Relatively safe to make, so long as your condensed milk doesn't explode. If you are worried about this, just buy a jar of caramel and use that instead.
I have leftover lamb from last night. Mincing up meat n veges.
Parsnips carrots onion sweet potatoes.

This was a favorite growing up when I used to mince with a hand mincer. Kitchen whizz is so much quicker.
Here is a debate in my house. I made a Shepherd's Pie for supper and my grandma in law asked why it didn't have a crust. I stated because they aren't supposed to! This began a lengthy family debate. I'm looking for you folks to weigh in.
The basics of a Shepherd's Pie (without a specific...

PEANUT BUTTER CREAM PIE
As many of you know baking is not Forte . I much prefer savory cooking. In the spirit of a family Thanksgiving gathering I made desert. In the spirit of our Nut Challenge I made a Peanut Butter Cream Pie. No - I did not make my own crust. I did not whip cream. I am...

Beef & Stout Pies (with Mushrooms)
NOTE: I didn't follow the recipe below exactly as listed, as a pie with no bottom crust is really just a bowl of stew with a lid on. The filling is the same, except that I used an equivalent amount of chopped leeks in place of the onion and an equal...
This recipe is a wonderful example of the Caribbean, Spanish, English and French influences on Venezuelan cuisine. It is also one of the most popular recipes in the country. Given the complexity of the recipe, it must have been invented by a chef who was manically meticulous, insane, drunk, or...
For a long time, I struggled with getting good browning on my pie crusts, and I cycled through a host of different pie pan material trying to improve it.
I've tried ceramic, glass, nonstick metal, disposable foil, and finally settled on stainless steel. That, along with a couple of other...
I typically only go to the effort of making desserts if I am planning on sharing at a dinner party or some such. I've made this one a couple times to great success.
At any rate, this recipe source may be found at: Healthier Flourless Chocolate Cake, at DetoxInista.com.
Changes I made: I...

3/8 cup sugar
3 large egg yolks...

I found a recipe for these online the other day and my kids and I fell in love. I wanted to know how common these are and what flavor combinations you've tried/recommend. I wanna make these again this week. :).
I've had this pie former for years, I occasionally make pies that everyone loves. I got ingredients on Saturday and just made 6 steak mince and cheese, they are on the left, ones on the right are steak mince and shrooms.
These will be gone by tonight as people call in to get some.
I thought I'd have a go at making shepherds pie with lamb leg steak. Unfortunately it took a long time to cook the steak - much longer than the time indicated on the packaging. I think my grill is not very efficient. I just cut up the cooked steak and mixed it with gravy and mashed root veg and...
