I triple the amount of filling for my favorite meat pie and freeze each portion separately. On busy days, I just thaw the filling and bake in a refrigerated pie crust. —Joani Durandette, Glendora, California
This hearty meat pie has a filling seasoned with a tasty combination of herbs and spices and is topped with a flaky golden crust. Called tourtiere, it's a dish traditionally served by French Canadians following mid-night Mass on Christmas Eve.
