Hi everyone, first post on here and I am just looking for some advice. Hoping someone can help because I'm going crazy googling this and finding nothing.
I am looking to make old style rhubarb pies. The best way I can describe them is that they are like "scotch" pies but of course filled with rhubarb instead of meat. They are often coated with a glaze on the top too. I can't find a recipe anywhere and I'm not sure how to make the pastry. I'm also not sure about how the glaze is made.....
I appreciate this will probably be quite a specific request and perhaps they aren't sold outwith Scotland but I thought I would ask just incase.
Thank you all,
I am sure this is not the same thing, finglas, because this is an American recipe and has a double crust instead of a glaze. In the US, we usually mix strawberries and rhubarb together in pies instead of just rhubarb.
Being new to the site, you will probably not be able to reply to the post. If not and you have other questions, just start a new post and refer back to this one.
What you’re referring to is a Pastie or if Scottish, like my Mom was, a Birdie pie. I’ve posted below a recipe. Although this is from Australia, it’s the same pie. Now my Mom made rhubarb pies all the time, but never in a Birdie pie. s a matter of facts, Mom never put any sweet fillings in her Birdie pies. They we’re always strictly meat, or meat and potatoes. I have made them often when I had leftover pastry. Not enough to make anything with, so I made a Pastie/Birdie. So you can do as the recipe I posted, just substitute with rhubarb filling.
