  • Season to taste and simmer for 15 minutes or until the mushrooms are cooked and the sauce is thick; set aside to cool.
  • Once the mixture is cool prepare the pie dishes.
  • Very lightly roll out the pastry to just a little bit larger than the pie dish.
  • Place the cooled pie filling into the pie dish.
  • Brush the edge of the dish with water and place the pastry over the top, sticking the edges to the pie dish.
  • Make a hole in the middle of the “lid” with the tip of the knife to let steam escape as the pie bakes.
  • Brush the pastry with the beaten egg.
  • Enjoy!
