Until a few weeks ago I didn’t know that you can easily make your own pie shells. I hadn’t really thought about it either because I always bought them ready-made in the supermarket. But making your own is more fun and tastier!
You really only need 1 important ingredient and that is puff pastry. I had bought a fresh roll of puff pastry at the AH, from the refrigerator. But you can also make 8 puff pastry sheets from the freezer together. You also need an egg to cover the puff pastry for a nice color.
Which is also nice to cut other figures from the puff pastry instead of a round. For example, you can cut out a Christmas tree or star for Christmas. Or a square, which is chic and practical because then you have less puff pastry left. But you can also make something fun with these leftovers, such as these stuffed puff pastry stars or puff pastry with goat cheese snacks .
I personally would not recommend preparing these trays a day in advance. You then have a chance that they will already start to soften a bit. You can put them in the oven for a few minutes to warm up. Next week the recipe and video for mushroom ragout will be online. If you want to get started earlier, you can also make this delicious ragout with chicken . Have fun!

Pastry pies recipe
1 roll of puff pastry (or 8 loose slices)
1 egg (to cover)
Optionally a little flour
Baking tray with baking paper
Round cookie cutter 7 cm & 4 cm,
Heat the oven to 200 degrees. Roll out the dough and press out 15 circles with the large cookie cutter. Leave 4 whole and press the other 11 circles from the center with the small round shape. Place the 4 whole rounds on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Brush it with a little of the beaten egg. Poke some holes in it with a fork. Then put a layer of circle edges on top and brush with egg again. Repeat this 2 more times. If you run out of one last circle, cut it out of the dough manually. Also place the small circles (lids) on the baking tray and brush everything again with egg. Bake them crispy for 20 to 25 minutes.
