Easier (and faster) to make than you think, meat pies are the perfect winter food. Make one of these comforting treats this weekend.

1. Sean Heather’s Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherds PieEven easier than a pot pie (with no pastry to fiddle with), this shepherd’s pie features garlic confit for an extra kick.

2. Chiko Rolls

3. Steak and Guinness Pie

4. Beef and Bacon Meat Pies
