Tasha's Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Pies
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Tasha lined her picnic pies with a floor of mustard and then mixed sausage meat with nutmeg and sage, apples and cranberries.

Prue Leith raved about the addition of mustard. There were also complements for the thin, crisp pastry and the fact that sausage, which is notorious for shrinking during cooking, was perfectly packed.

Paul Hollywood: "I do think they look good. You can see the laminations. Beautiful. You obviously made some very good pastry dough, but you just ran out of time somewhere along the line because they needed longer in the oven."

Prue Leith: "Flavour is superb. The apricot works beautifully well with it."

Paul Holloywood: "Lovely. The only issue is the bake. It's too soggy. It needed another ten minutes to make that flaky and beautiful, but your filling is exceptional."

About The Great British Baking Show ™

The Great British Bake Off ™ (often abbreviated to Bake Off or GBBO and referred to in the United States as The Great British Baking Show ™) is a streamed British baking competition, in which a group of amateur bakers compete against each other in a series of rounds, hoping to impress the judges with their baking skills. One contestant in The Great British Baking Show ™ is eliminated in each round, and the winner is selected from the three contestants who reach the final.

The Great British Baking Show ™ operates on a weekly elimination process to find the best all-around baker from the contestants, who are all amateurs. In each episode, the bakers are given three challenges based on that week's theme: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a show-stopper. The bakes are assessed by the judges who then choose a "Star Baker" for the week, and a contestant is also eliminated. In the final round, three bakers are left and a winner is chosen from the three.
