Our Detailed Step-by-Step Pasty Cooking Guide
When you place an order for pasties online, we will send you a confirmation email that includes a link to download the pasty baking instructions. Additionally, when your pasty delivery arrives, you will receive a flyer with cooking instructions and a pasty marking guide.
Please note that the following instructions refer to a 283g medium-sized pasty, which is the most popular size. If you have larger pasties (336g or 454g), you may need to cook them for a slightly longer time. It’s always a good idea to visually check their doneness.
Upon receiving your pasties, check that the product is still frozen. If the pastry is slightly soft but the contents are frozen, you can either place it in the freezer or proceed with the baking process.
Identify your pasty by referring to the pasty marking guide. In this example, we are baking a Turkey, Stuffing, and Cranberry Pasty from frozen. Place the frozen pasty on a hot tray.
Our pasties are delivered pre-glazed, so there’s no need to wash or baste them before or during baking.
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and make sure your baking tray is already inside, so the pasty sits on a hot surface from the start. You can use baking paper/parchment if you prefer.
Once the oven reaches the desired temperature, carefully place the pasty on the hot tray and position it on the top shelf of your oven.
After approximately 20-25 minutes, rotate the tray to ensure an even bake. While fan-assisted ovens provide the best results, most ovens have hot spots that can lead to uneven browning. Rotating the tray halfway through the baking process will help achieve an even bake.
Around the 35-40 minute mark, you might notice liquid bubbling through the markings on top or through the crimp seam. This indicates that the pasty is almost cooked.
During the final 5-10 minutes of baking, keep a close eye on the pasty to achieve a golden finish. Be careful not to let it “boil out,” as this can affect its appearance.
Once the pasty has been in the oven for 45 minutes, it should be ready to be removed. Take care to use oven gloves when handling the hot tray. Remember that the pasty’s internal temperature will reach 90-100 degrees, so allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes before eating.
After cooling, your pasty is ready to be enjoyed! Take a moment to admire its increased size and dig into the delicious feast wrapped in a flaky pastry case.
Now that you have mastered the art of cooking frozen pasties, get ready to indulge in a delightful culinary experience like no other. Enjoy!
