Rumwell Farm Shop has some inspiration for those Christmas dinner leftovers

Ingredients:

Hot water crust pastry

450g/1lb plain flour, sifted, plus extra for dusting

100g/3½oz strong white flour sifted

1 tsp salt

75g/2½oz chilled butter, cut into cubes

150g/5½oz lard, cut into cubes, plus extra for greasing

1 free-range egg beaten, to glaze

Filling

400g/14oz leftover Rumwell luxury stuffing

500g/1lb 2oz cooked turkey, white meat, brown meat or both, roughly chopped

Salt and ground black pepper

200g/7oz cranberries (fresh, or frozen and defrosted)

150g/5½oz Rumwell cranberry & port Sauce

Zest of 1 orange

Method

1. Sift the plain and strong flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre of the mixture.

2. Heat the lard and 200ml/7fl oz water in a small saucepan over a medium heat. When the mixture is simmering pour it into the well in the flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon, gradually drawing the dry mixture into the liquid, until the mixture comes together as a dough.

3. Grease a 18cm/7in springform cake tin, or raised pie mould with melted lard. Make sure you grease the tin liberally to prevent the pastry from sticking.

4. Tip the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until smooth and pliable. Roll out three-quarters of the dough and use it to line the prepared tin. Press the pastry into the base and sides of the tin to prevent air bubbles from forming. Leave the excess pastry hanging over the edge of the tin.

5. For the filling, spoon half of the Rumwell Luxury stuffing into the pastry case and press down with the back of a spoon. Arrange half of the turkey over the stuffing, then season with salt and pepper. Mix the cranberries, Rumwell cranberry & port sauce and grated orange zest together and spoon half over the turkey. Repeat the layers once more, pressing down as before.

6. Roll out the remaining pastry until it is large enough to cover the pie. Brush the overhanging edges with water and place the lid on top, squeezing it together at the edges to seal. Trim off most of the excess pastry using scissors or a knife, and crimp to create a decorative edge. Make a small hole in the centre of the lid and chill for 30 minutes.

7. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 6/350F.

8. Place the chilled pie on a roasting tray and cook for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush with beaten egg to glaze. Return to the oven for 15 minutes.

9. When the pie is cooked, remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack for about 40 minutes before removing from the springform tin or pie mould.
