These Australian meat pies are easy to make and delicious, with only 10 minutes active prep time.
Make ahead by preparing to the baking stage and freezing. Cook from frozen on the day required.
Add some grated/shredded cheese to the mince mixture to make a meat and cheese pie, or add a handful of thinly sliced mushrooms to make meat and mushroom pies.
Moisten edges of pastry base with water. Top with puff pastry sheet, pressing down gently to seal edges. Trim and score edges, cut a few small slits on the top of the pie to let steam escape. Glaze.
Bake in very hot oven for 15 minutes, reduce to moderately hot and cook a further 25 minutes or until pastry is golden.
