15.  Brush some egg wash on the edge of the oven safe dish.


16.  Place the individual dough on each dish and brush some egg wash over the pie sheet. (If you like to serve the pie later, saran wrap it at this point and keep them in the fridge.)


17.  Place in the oven for 30min.



18.  Once the pie turns golden brown and the stew starts to boil inside, it’s done. Serve while it’s hot.
