Lamb, mint and rosemary pies

We made these pies for dinner this week and I have to say: they were better than any I’ve ever bought! They were just the right amount of savoury and because there were five, everyone was able to have one.

These would make a great family dinner on a Sunday night, or as a make-ahead for lunches.
