Foodie Friday - Welsh Katt Pie

As you can guess, from its name this is a traditional Welsh food.  Originally it was sold to people attending the cattle fair at Templeton.  Katt is not a reference to cats but apparently was the original baker's name.

So what is a Welsh Katt Pie?  The pie is made with lamb or more authentically with mutton, mixed or layered with currants and dark sugar. They have lard pastry top and bottom, and can be spiced up a bit with pepper, sharpened with some lemon zest, or given a subtler note with thyme. It is usual for them to be individual pies,  as you’d expect with fair fodder, but at home they are made family sized.
