      These were exactly what we were looking for. We would buy homemade ones at a caterers near the cottage. She has since pasted & so has the recipe. Thank you for the recipe Missy Wombat. Will be making these for years to come.

      Thank you for the recipe. Thou this is my first pie, all my colleagues think the pie was fabulous. My big boss, who is dieting, had 2 pies in a roll. While munching his 2nd pie, he told me he should not have even one according to his diet plan!!

      Now I see why Australians are so fond of their meat pies! They are great! I just made them into handpies because I can. Made for MFO, November 2013.
