pastry and pies

right...i have made a stew for tea today, everytime i make this stew for tea we always have enough left over for tea the day after.....the day after i always put a crust on it and make it into a pie, now, i usually make the pastry on the day of eating the pie...if i made the pastry today and put it on the top (without cooking the pastry) will it be ok to put in the fridge for tomorrow?

Personally I would make the pastry today and wrap it in cling film, leave it in the fridge and roll it out and put on your pie tomorrow.

Pastry is always better if it is left to 'rest' before using.

If you don't have cling film then put it into a dish and put foil over the top of the dish.....or a tupperware type container will do.
I frequently cook pastry the day before we are going to eat it........and then the second baking makes the crust even crisper....just don't let it brown too much on the first cooking.

Re: pastry and pies

Whenever I make stews and casseroles/broths etc I always make enough to feed an army. i tend to think i ve still got a house full hahaha..
Anyway what I do is but the plastic tubs from the pound shop and put whats left into individual potions and freeze them . theyre great for lunches to be taken to work by the kids.
I hardly ever throw stuff away

Don't use your hands then......use a fork......and icy cold liquid to bind the ingredients together......and only just enough to get the ingredients to bind.
Never roll out the pastry more than you need to....it makes it tough(something to do with the starch molecules bursting) cut lumps of dough to the size you think will cover the plate/pie dish/filling.
If you can let the pastry rest for even a short while in the fridge it helps.

Don't put pastry onto warm fillings unless you like soggy pastry.

I have had many many comments on my pastry...shortcrust/flaky/sweet...which I always make from scratch.
(it's easy and cheaper that the mixes)
