Yes I have done.
So have I
Don't you have to live in Cornwall for that to be permitted...?
I make pasties and I am told they are really nice and people always ask for more. They are not 'Cornish' but very easy. I use a large tin of corned beef, potatoes, carrots, onion. All chopped into small cubes about 1/4 inch sq and well mixed together. Season with LOTS of ground black pepper. Then just form into pasties using short crust pastry. I prefer to make my own pastry but sometimes use the shop bought sheets.

Sorry about the question I thought I had put it in the search box. Got to get used to the new layout. I was just looking to see if anyone else had asked about them in the past. I have bookmarked the one from DTCwordfan though. Thanks.
Eddie how high do you cook them and for how long please?
around 180 to 200, (no fan) and about 45 mins to an hour - watch them as to browning around the crust.. I prefer them cooled after the cooking.
There is only ONE Cornish Pasty !

DTC's recipe looks wonderful.

On no account add anything else !
certainly not carrots or peas - or else it risks becoming a Greggs abortion
You can make a pasty using almost anything you wish, of course that stops it being a 'Cornish' pasty but doesn't mean it won't be delicious.

Not every cash strapped family can afford good steak.
Mamy.....Cornish Pasties are normally made with skirt beef, hardly the most expensive cut.

Also you don't need a great deal to make a really good pasty !
Yes, 180 deg for 35/40 mins, a bit more if they look too pale.
I'm going to try Eddie's recipe possibly this week. Sounds tasty.
skirt, top or chuck, Mamya, not fillet or sirloin!!!
My children used to love my haggis pasties made much as Eddie does with corned beef.
Thanks for the lesson boys, I'm well aware that skirt is usually used.


If you can only run to a couple of slices of corned beef padded out with more spuds that's what you'll do - just mentioning alternatives.
Isn't that an adaption of a 'Bridie'??
A local baker in my area, makes what he calls a Welsh Pasty, which is very tasty indeed.....bacon, cheese and leek.
My great uncle George lived in Plymouth, he had a live-in housekeeper called May. She was Cornish and made Cornish pasties to die for. I absolutely love them.
