Chef John's Face Pie
Most Halloween-themed dishes are just not scary. It's time to turn up the terror, with a little inspiration from the most horrible meat pie shop on Fleet Street. This recipe takes Chef John's classic French-Canadian meat pie and twists the crust into a creepy face that deserves to be center stage at any Halloween gathering. Watch how to shape pastry dough into all the essential facial features, from the brow ridge to the lips. Chilling the face parts is essential here, especially before and after adding the thin layer of "skin." You can fill the pie with anything you want, but to stick with the original meat pie, refer to the video for Tourtiere. Get the recipe for Chef John's Face Pie.
