Now grab a fork and dig in!!

Notes:

  • All oven cook differently so cooking times are approximate. {I think I need to ask Santa for a new oven}
  • Try to brush the egg EVENLY over the pie crust or you will end up with golden streaks on your finished pie.
  • If you do not like wine, substitute Guinness Extra Stout.
  • For no alcohol, substitute additional beef stock.
  • I had Snowflake Cookie Cutters {affiliate link} in the drawer so that’s what I used. Any shape will work, or leave them off if you prefer.
