Pie making is an art that has been on for some ages and I won’t really bother with history
If you are keen on knowing history of pies, google it up.
What I know is for you to be able to whip up your own batch of sauce and covering and eventually making pies in your home by yourself.
The uniqueness of the meatpie is simply because it is filled with meat.
For the meatpie, preparation of two things are important;
¢ little water (2-3tbsp)
¢ Pepper (habanero pepper)
Preparation of Dough
* Pour your flour into a container, add your baking powder and pinch of salt and* Add your margarine and mix until it forms crumbs (because of the amount of butter, the crumbs are yellow in colour)
* Mix with little water and knead lightly until it forms dough.. Believe me, it will form with little water because of the amount of butter.
* Wrap inside cling film and put in fridge to set for about 15mins. Upon release, it would come out smoothly and round.
* Cut out a chunk and roll out thin (2mm), OPEN UP YOUR MEATPIE CUTTER,
PLACE THE ROLLED DOUGH ON THE MEATPIE CUTTER,
PUT YOUR SAUCE IN CENTRE AND CLOSE TIGHTLY AND TRIM OFF EXCESSES.
THEN OPEN AND YOUR MEATPIE IS FORMED.
If you can’t get a MEATPIE cutter, after the dough is rolled out 2mm, pour the sauce in the middle, close it, cut and trim the edges and press together with a fork. If it doesn’t close, sprinkle little water at the edges before pressing together with a fork.
