Ingredients

For the Pastry

150g butter, straight out of the fridge (needs to be cold)
250g flour
1/2 tsp salt
40ml cold water

For the Pie Filling

1 tin beans - 400g
2 handfuls grated cheese of choice

Method

Step one: Make your pastry - weigh out your butter, cube into 1-2cm cubed chunks
Step two: Weigh out your flour into a bowl, add the salt, then add the chilled cubes of butter and start to rub into the flour with your fingertips
Step three: Continue to rub the butter into the flour until you achieve a mixture that resembles fine breadcrumbs
Step four: Add your 40ml cold water, mix through with a knife, then start to press the mixture into a ball of dough
Step five: Put your dough ball on a floured surface, and knead for about a minute - I did this so the end result wasn’t too short + crumbly
Step six: Start to roll your dough out, rotating it at 90°, to give you a rectangle sheet - if you need to sprinkle more flour over, do - this will stop the pastry sticking to anything
Step seven: Roll until the dough is about 3-4mm thin
Step eight: Using a knife, slice a rectangle out of the dough, thats big enough to cover your pie maker
Step nine: Press your sheet of dough into your pie maker, then add in your beans too fill it 1/2 full, then sprinkle with your cheese, season, and top with 1-2 more tbsp beans
Step ten: Cut out another sheet of dough, that will cover the top of your pie (you want it to be just bigger than the circumference of your pie, so you can press it around the edges
Step eleven: Press the pastry sheets together, to ensure non of the filling escapes, then make a couple of scores in the top of your pie - dont cut too far down, as the filling will flow out the top
Step twelve: Brush the top with a sparing amount of milk/ egg wash Step thirteen: Close your pie maker and allow to cook for 20-25 mins, until golden brown on the top Step thirteen: Leave to rest for 3-4 mins, then serve with salad, or mash
