Ask Chef Christy - Ryschewys - medieval hand pies filled with dried fruits and spices

Rychewys – Henry VIII would have liked my GF version!

Ryschewys is a fruit-filled hand pie from the 15th century, and was one something that would have been served to King Henry VIII of England. Using my Gluten-Free Sturdy Crust recipe was a success! The pastry was flaky but held together quite well as a hand pie. The filling was a little dry so they were best with a big glass of milk or tea, but I will definitely make these again!
