But, by the time they are heated through, the pastry is a bit burnt and rather dry. That's why I heat them in the MW first.

 

In that case start them in the MW then finish them in the oven to crisp the pastry but not overcook it.

 

I also use this technique when I want to bake jacket potatoes quickly, MW until almost cooked then finish in oven to crisp up the skin.

That is exactly my method.

In the fifties and sixties there was a bakery in Charlestown, Chesterfields. The owner's nephew was one of my highschool classmates and sometimes, on holidays, we would visit the bakery and have a sampling of their wares. The pies were really good. That didn't stop us from having a similar jingle to the above. Hilarious to young schoolboys.

Chesterfield's pies

are full of flies

with maggots in the middle

and a cupfull of piddle.

 

Eaten a few Chesterfields in my day.

Unlucky or lucky, depends on how you look at it.

I would have thought my avatar in fencing gear would have been a subtle nod in that direction.

 

But obviously your professional background has seen through it. 😀😀😀
