Directions

Serving Size: 8 servings

  • Crust: blend flour and salt in medium mixing bowl. Cut chilled shortening into ½” (1cm) cubes. Cut chilled shortening cubes into flour mixture, using a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some small pea-sized pieces remaining.
  • Sprinkle half the maximum recommended amount of ice cold water over the flour mixture. Using a fork, stir and draw from bottom of bowl to the top, distributing moisture evenly into flour. Add more water by the tablespoon (15mL) until dough is moist enough to hold together when pressed together.
  • Divide dough in two, making one piece slightly larger than the other. Flatten into ½” (1cm) thick disks, wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.
  • Filling: heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add meat, potato, mushrooms, onion, celery and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until meat is brown, about 10 minutes. Add spices and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and chill filling in refrigerator until cool, about 30 minutes. This prevents the crust from becoming soggy.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • Roll out larger piece of dough on a lightly floured surface and fit into a 9”(23cm) pie plate. Spoon in filling. Roll out remaining pastry and place over filling. Seal pastry edges, trim and flute edges. Cut steam vents in upper crust.
  • Combine egg and water. Brush over top of pastry. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 375°F (190°C). Bake for an additional 45-50 minutes or until pastry is golden.
