TIPS

If not using pie crust, use 1 14-ounce packet of frozen puff pastry which has been thawed. In this case place filling in pie plates or individual oven proof bowls and top with rolled pastry circle. Ensure that the dish is sealed completely with the crust and excess crust is folded under and trimmed. Make a few gashes on pastry to allow steam to pass.
