this dough is enough to make 6 half-cup muffin size pies.
Roll out the dough, cut the size required and place in a pie dish. Poke holes at the base using a fork. Put 2 - 3 tablespoons fillings in. Cut another piece of dough to cover the top. Poke a few more times using fork on the cover of the pie. Brush with 1 beaten egg. Baked in a preheated oven at 180°C for 25 - 30 mins.
use remnant to make decorations for pies.
After 25 mins, my pastry still look a little pale.. so i baked for another 15 mins more
I may add a little bit more butter next time =D
