Did you know it is British pie week
I used to make pastry quite often but seldom make it these days. Lovely pies can be made and made "healthier" with lattice type tops, only using a top rather than a top and bottom to the apple or meat pie, using lots of fruit in the filling as well as keeping as a treat rather than every day.
You can also use some wholemeal flour in making the pastry to boost the fibre content.
Pie toppings can also be made with vegetables like mashed or sliced potatoes, mashed up vegetables like swede or carrots or even cauliflower
