Question Meat pie - crust recipe and weights

Hi all,

My first post in this wonderful forum.. I hope you can help me.

I'm looking to make meat pies in some bulk and I'd love if the experienced pie makers out there can confirm if my crust expectations are OK or if I need to adjust some ingredients.

Using individual pie tins is it reasonable to expect following ingredients for the crust of an individual meat pie?

Shortcrust pastry (pie body)
All purpose flour 90g
Butter 20g
Lard 20g
Water 15ml
Salt 0.1g

Puff pastry (bought) 45g
Egg 1/5

I'll do plenty of trial and error, but if you can advise if these look reasonable, it's be much appreciated!

Welcome to DC.

You've probably already found it here already. In case you get lost here's a link. Pies & Pastries - Discuss Cooking - Cooking Forums

For the size pies your making check out the Breville pie threads. The Savory and Sweet threads are also associated with that specific pie size/crust recipes that your looking for. All the recipes are TNT.

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.
