Individual Shepherd's Pies

This week was a partial success. I picked up some cheap ceramic individual pie dishes so thought I'd see whether I could use them to make some little pies. It turns out I can't - not in the style I tried anyway. The pies had a rough puff case, yummy porterhouse steak (also bought cheap on special) and vegetable filling and potato mash top.

The dishes stopped the pastry from cooking properly. Perhaps with a little longer in the oven they might have cooked through properly, but I actually doubt it. I'll keep the dishes for doing other things (I'm not sure yet) and see about getting some metal tins to make individual pies in.
