When I take the trouble to make a pie about twice a year or buy them for that matter, I end up feeling guilty re the pastry and throw the pastry out.

Jenny, do you mean that you feel you shouldn't eat it? If so, then it's not something to fel guilty about if it's not very often. Why not simply avoid pies?

But Atheist I love them but as you can see from the post I don't indulge in them often,
Jenny, if you love them, then why not eat them pastry and all? If it's only twice a year it won't do you any harm, surely.
Roll some currants into the spare pastry and bake it. Nice with butter on.
That's 'flat cake' to me, always a perk after a baking session.
Don't throw it out, give it to the wild birds, they will love it!

ILM - I know now that I should have given it to birds but as I said in another post - I did leave cake and bread but it was never touched so I figured they didn't like it.
Do you mean you feel guilty about throwing the extra pastry left over away? No need for that you can freeze it. Or do you mean you cook the pies then feel guilty about eating the pastry and so throw the pastry part of the pie away? If that is the case why make the blinking things in the first place? Why feel guilty about eating a portion of pastry two or three times a year? You're not a supermodel are you? and unless you are gluten intolerant what harm could it possiblly do?
I like pie’s and pie’s like me. I would never make a pie homeless.

I don't like pastry so I never make pies. My boys like them though, shop bought, usually Pukka pie.

Why the guilt?

I love pies too...if you don't want the pastry, jj, give it to the birds. No need to feel guilty about it x
A Scotch pie with mushy peas and mint sauce is delicious!
