Pie pie pie. Is there much else better in this world than pie? Nope. Perfecting pie, or at least the consumption of pie throughout winter is what it's all about. #lifegoals. As part of my recipe contributions to the seriously excellent Urban List, I get to make pies. Spectacular "winter is coming" kind of pies like this Moroccan lamb shank number. You see life requires a tremendous amount of pie. Pie like this that has slow cooked goodness oozing from its pores, encased in a hug of buttery light pastry that hopefully finds its way to your belly via a dinner table surrounded by your best of mixed tape of family and friends. And preferably bucketloads of wine.
I've filled it with dates and chickpeas as well which do a wonderful job of soaking up the juices and thickening the pie insides to perfection.
