FOOD: Cornish Pasty

When I want to try a new recipe, I tend to go all out. Not only was I baking Cornish Pasties for the first time, I was making my own pastry for the first time. I have memories of always eating Cornish Pasties in car journeys while going on holiday or on a Saturday for lunch. Easy to eat warm or cold they are meal in themselves. Joe had never had one and I was missing them so it was time to get to baking my own (they are lacking in American stores around these parts).

They were actually a lot easier they I had imagined even the pastry turned out okay for the first attempt. Lovely to bite through a tasty crust to pasties crammed fill of ground turkey (we use turkey instead of beef), onions, carrots and potatoes. Tasty indeed. 

If your instead in the recipe yourself you'll find it here

Are you a fan of the old Cornish Pasty? Ever tried baking them yourself? I'd love to hear! 


  1. My mam always used to make Cornish pasties with the leftovers from beef stew - best part of the stew!! These look so good, you're making me hungry. Hope Joe enjoyed them!?

    1. He did, so they'll certainly be made again once we've got through this batch of them. I bet they were tasty indeed with the stew left overs!

  2. Oh they are making my mouth water.......yummy.
    Well done sweet........

    1. I know, the picture gets me hungry every time!

  3. Mmmm. I'm a huge Cornish Pasty fan but too scared to try myself as I have had disasters with pastry in the past.

  4. I am seasoned at making pasties (as I live in Cornwall) and a bit of a purist - it must have the crimp at the side not on the top like the miners had them.
    I will be bringing these tasty morsels to the US in October! Yay!
    Love that you had a go at making them - so tasty!
