A pasty is a baked pastry, which is associated with Cornwall, the westernmost county in England. It is made by placing uncooked filling typically of meat and vegetables on a pastry circle and folding it to wrap the filling, crimping the edge to form a seal. This Guava version is a sweet dessert in a petite size, making it the perfect little dessert for cocktail parties.
Shepherd’s Pie is the perfect way to use leftover roasted meat of any kind and leftover potatoes of any kind. A St. Stephen’s Day pie is made using leftover turkey or ham. A Cumberland pie is a version using breadcrumbs on top instead of potatoes. The English also make a similar dish with fish known as fish pie.
