For a large blind bake your shortcrust first (place into your pie dish and line with baking paper and top with either rice or pastry beads-blind bake for about 12-15minutes.) fill with your mix and place your puff pastry ontop and poke some holes in. Brush with some whisked egg. Bake for about 25minutes on 180degrees until golden.
