Picture of pirate pie

Pirate pie is a savory dinner pastry shaped to look like a pirate ship. This pie recipe can be adapted for a sweet dessert pie, like this apple pie-rate done like a pirate ship which I based my design from. Instead of a sweet pie, I wanted a hearty meat pie, and I thought it was an easy trick to complete the pirate scene and have a gravy sea, and a mashed potato island complete with golden treasure.

Making pirate pie isn't much different than making regular meat pies. A small baking loaf tins is bent to be the boat hull, and parchment paper is used to line the pan and allow easy removal. The small baking loaf tins were in a pack of 5 for $1, and parchment paper was 6 - A1 [8.5"x11"] sheets for $1.99.

This is an easy and fun twist on your classic meat pie recipe.
Ready to walk the plank, ye scurvy land lubber?

Step 1: Bend loaf pan into hull

Pinch the midpoint of one of the shorter edges and bow outwards. This will be the bow (front) of our boat.

Turn the boat over and work the underside of the bow, removing the rounded rectangular profile with a hydrodynamic shape of a privateer schooner.

I found that placing my thumb in the bottom of the hull I could form a uniform curve under each side of the bow.

Refine shape as desired.

Very cool!
How do you do the thing where the pictures cycle through like that (in step 1)? That's pretty neat.
It is an "Animated GIF", a special GIF image that contains several images, and cycles through them when viewed with suitable software.  

Can anyone recommend some free software for making them please ?

This is totally awesome! I would make this for my family, but for some insane reason they don't like pie crust. I believe they may be alien spies.
