Everyone loves a good pie, deep down we all want to dig into one with a perfect buttery crust, and seek out that treasure of sinful dark rich tasty filling that just makes your mouth water.
I have found that perfect pie recipe. Donna Hay's Beef Guinness and Mushroom Pie which was surprisingly easy to put together once you have all the elements organised.
I have never tried out "hot water" pastry before and let me just tell you, this is every novice pastry makers solution to creating the most delicious crust with minimum effort. It was was fairly quick to make and so deliciously buttery that it crumbles in your mouth.
The Guinness in the meat brings out this deep, richness of the meat which just explodes with so many layers of flavour, that you will want to eat the whole pie.
This pie is the ultimate comfort food, so put down that pack of frozen pies (yes I see you) and roll up your sleeves and make Donna Hay's Beef Guinness and Mushroom Pie, you will not regret it!!!
