Tell us about yourself!
I have had one of these for 50 years. As a kid I loved it. In my 20's my friends wold stop by to play it, living next door to the beer store made my apartment a popular destination. As a parent I made sure my kids played with it as well. My youngest of 5 kids were twin boys, they would blow peoples minds by each taking control of only one knob and taking the trip to the end and back successfully together. Now they own their own craft brewery and have three available for the bar patrons to play with.Any way, great job!

My pans took quite a while to arrive.You may want to hold off on the beef.Unless of course it's a great deal, then buy and freeze.
Hi Heather,Maybe lining with parchment would help them release from a rigid container.You may have to leave the dough a bit thicker so it will stand while filling.I see the meat confusion. I bought two of those packages and used them both.It's surprising how much those little forms hold. I did have some left over filling, not much though. Having raised 5 kids, leftovers have always welcome. Better than one less than full pie.
When the 5 kids were home I could use the flour in time but these days I just don't use enough even if I freeze it.I didn't notice much difference cutting back on the butter.But I think my heart thanked me at least that's what my loving wife told me.The freezer grater idea is top notch I'll have to remember that.Spring form pies are cool looking for sure.I look forward to seeing yours here one day.
They use activated charcoal, the stuff they use at the hospital if you poison yourself.I found the taste somewhat crisp and bright.Maybe just my imagination. But hey it was a gift.I would like to try the black salt from India some time.They mix pink Himalayan with herbs and spices then bake it until black/brown.I've never seen it in the store so I may have to google it and buy on line.
I wish there was a hard set rule. I find that some places advertise lean and it melts out to be lots of grease in the pan. Others cook up fairly dry.
You can wrap just about anything in a spring form pie and it will look delicious.I'm thinking maybe personal size lasagnas.Ha! I never noticed the metric thing.My Bosch oven is set to Fahrenheit.To tell you the truth I never really caught on to the metric thing fully.I know that 30 Celsius is summer but 350 Fahrenheit has been in the kitchen my entire life, That will never change.I'm in Canada near the US border so depending on what TV station I watch I get either or.
Nice to know it will be a favorite.I don't know if it will go with your Walking Dead Tonic but watching TV and eating pie would be difficult anyway.It looks tasty.

Nicely done!I must make one.
Thank you. I love the look of spring form pies. You can hide just about anything in them.You have quite the collection of Instructables. I especially like the etched spice bottles.
I never thought of it that way. Er, ah, I mean, I meant to do that? (-;Thanks.
I'm glad to have inspired someone. Good luck with your Berries and Cream entry in the pie contest. It is an outstanding Instructable.
Great idea!I must try this.
Thank you so much! I love the look of spring form pies.From scratch recipes are always nice wrapped in them, they're also an excellent way to make leftovers exciting again.I tend to go on a bit when I write Instructables I'm glad someone likes the style, thank you.You have an astounding collection of Instructables.All wonderfully done.Where do you find the time?I was surprised to see a conventional pressure cooker used in your chicken soup recipe.They scare me a bit so I've never used one.I've been using an Instant Pot lately and am blown away with the whole pressure cooker world.Happy instructing
Nicely done!Adding a link to where you purchased the pulls might be helpful to others.

Cast iron rocks!Looks tasty.
Thanks Penolopy. I think adding the day old mashed potatoes gave a nice clean line to the layers.I must credit my wife for that addition. She makes the best fermented lemon mashed.
Glad you were inspired. Wow a Silverwood form, Atora Suet AND Brittish cook books! You are as ready as anyone can be. My Fat Dadio's form, Dr. Oetker and virtually no measurements is somewhat embarrassing by comparison. I did some research on hot water crust, but Dr. Oetker allowed me to wing it without the effort involved in using expensive ingredients and reading a recipe. Cut in butter, add water knead and roll. Not exactly rocket science. I would love to see you do an instructable showing how the British do it to compare with my Southern Ontario version. Worst case scenario is stew with croutons still delicious.

Point well taken Nancy.This was my first attempt at an instructable and a spring form pie as well.My cooking style is very much an on the fly approach.I just open the fridge and cupboards and start cooking.If its in the fridge it may very well end up in the pot.Quantities are ones personal expression of the art form.I love spice so I add lots, but to tell you to add a table spoon of habanero powder would be wrong of me. Also, I don't use salt when I cook so I guess I should have added "season to taste" as an instruction. You can add it in but you can never take it out. I had five children so quantities = make lots. In fact the pie was just a small part of the end product. It was merely something to make the cooking experience more fun. So another quantity, that of fun = again...

In fact the pie was just a small part of the end product. It was merely something to make the cooking experience more fun. So another quantity, that of fun = again have lots. The rest of the ingredients are being enjoyed still and it has been days since said pie has faded into a distant memory.I do understand, a little late though, what you are saying. I just saw a comfort food contest and thought "Hey I can do that" Then I went into creation mode. After submitting the end product I looked at a few other entries and saw that even making a sandwich or a burger can be documented to the extreme. If I do another Instructable it will be a much more well documented effort. But I think this one begs you to throw aside measuring devices open the fridge and cupboard and have some fun.
Thanks Attosa it was yummy.
