I made some pastry and lined a pie dish with it, slopped in the rich beef filling
and, as I had quite a bit of pastry left over, I decided to have a bit of fun with the pie lid. Remembering The Dandy comic character Desperate Dan and his Cow Pie with the horns I decided to recreate it using the medium of shortcrust pastry
and here's my interpretation before a visit to the oven
Every day, on the way home from school, Buster asks what's for dinner and he's normally greeted by a sarcastic response like rat pie and chips, so when I told him it was cow pie he didn't really bat an eyelid, until he saw it. He said he knew they were only pastry horns but I don't think he was entirely convinced, especially when I mooed as he cut into it. Hopefully this dining experience won't make him want to become a vegetarian, perhaps next time I should make a pastry rat pie with chips!
