Gather Your Ingredients

The first step to making amazing party pies is to get all the ingredients you need. You will need flour, butter, salt, and water for the pie crust. For the filling, think about what you enjoy the most. You can use beef, chicken, or vegetables.

Don’t forget to pick up some cheese, onions, and seasoning to add flavor. Make sure you have everything before you start. This way, pastry making will be smooth and fun.

Prepare the Dough

To make the dough, mix two cups of flour and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Then, cut in one cup of butter until the mixture looks crumbly.

Slowly add about half a cup of ice water, stirring until the dough comes together. It’s important not to add too much water – you want it just right so it sticks together.

Once it’s ready, shape the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic, and chill it in the fridge for about one hour. This will make it easier to handle and roll out for your party pies.

Choose Your Fillings

Choosing your fillings is the fun part where you get creative. If you’re a fan of meaty pies, cook some beef or chicken with onions until they’re tasty and tender.

Make sure to chop everything into small pieces so it fits nicely inside the pie. You can also mix in some herbs for extra flavor. Remember to cook everything well before you put it into the dough.

Assemble the Pies

After preparing your fillings and chilling the dough, it’s time to assemble the pies. Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it’s about 1/4 inch thick.

Use a round cutter or a cup to cut out pie bases. Place a spoonful of your filling in the center of each base. Then, cut out another piece of dough for the top.

Press the edges together with a fork to seal your pie. Make a small slit on top for steam to escape during baking. Now, they’re ready to bake!

Bake to Perfection

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) to get it ready for baking. Then, place your assembled pies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. This keeps them from sticking.

Before you put them in the oven, brush the top of each pie with a beaten egg. This will give them a beautiful golden color.

Bake the pies for about 25 to 30 minutes or until they’re golden and crispy. Once they’re done, take them out and let them cool a bit before serving!

When serving, pair these party pies with other types of finger foods. If you decide to do so, you might want to consider finger food catering services.
