Hand Raised Systems
What is a Hand Raised Pie?
Hand raised pies are made using one of the oldest and most traditional methods for producing a pie. Using a hot water crust pastry, these generally cold served pork pies pastry shells were formed by hand around a wooden "dolly". The "dolly" would then be removed, the pie would be filled, lidded and hand crimped before being baked freestanding (without a tin/mould/container) which allows the pie to gently sag and give it that hand raised look!
