The great news is that these hand pies are ready for the oven in just a few minutes.
Sprinkle a little flour on your kitchen work surface
Roll out the pastry – make sure it’s quite thin, about 2 or 3mm or you’ll have really chunky pies!
Cut your Mickey Shapes out
Spread the jam or pie filing over the half of the Mickey Mouse heads. Be careful not to put on too much that will ooze out and leave a little edge clear around them too.
Pop the other half of the Mickey Pastry shapes on top as lids
Brush Eggwash around the edges
Crimp around the edges to seal the pies shut. Use a fork.
Pop onto baking tray with greaseproof paper
Brush with milk
Cook at Gas Mark 6 for around 15 minutes, keeping an eye on them. Our oven likes to go from raw to cremated in no time at all.
Enjoy your pies!
