Back In Time For Tea 60s style TV show by the BBC featured a My Weekly recipe using mutton – here is a modern dish using lamb, which is more popular nowadays!


  1. Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle.
  2. Put the vegetable fat and water into a saucepan. Heat gently to melt, then bring to the boil. Pour into the well and beat with a wooden spoon to form a soft dough. Knead lightly until smooth. Cover and rest for 20 minutes.
  3. Mix together the lamb, sausagemeat and herbs. Season.
  4. Preheat the oven to 220°C, Fan Oven 200°C, Gas Mark 7.
  5. Roll out the pastry thinly on a floured surface and cut out 12 circles with a 10cm cutter. Use these to line a muffin tin, then pack in the filling. Cut out 12 tops using a 6cm cutter, using any trimmings to make pastry leaves.
  6. Dampen the pastry tops and position on the pies, pinching the edges to seal. Decorate with pastry leaves and brush with beaten egg. Bake for 35-40min until cooked and golden.
