    Perfect Pixie's Note:

    This is my mum's, so the BEST pie ever! It is fantastic served with ketchup and in my opinion is probably better cold. Great for picnics.

      This was a good recipe I doubled it and made mini egg and bacon pies with some of the mixture the kids don't like a large pie but somehow mini ones are great. Can't see the difference but they ate them and thats all that matters.
