Tip 1: If you would like the pie to be more saucy add cream. (We prefer single cream)
Tip 2: If the mixture is too runny mix 3/4 tbsp of cornflour in less than a 1/4 cup of milk & then add to the mixture.
Tip 3: You can also fill small pastries using this mixture which can be frozen & baked as needed.
