Cristy's Creamy Mushroom and Leek Pies

Cristy's Creamy Mushroom and Leek Pies
This dish earned a Hollywood Handshake on The Great British Baking Show ™

Cristy (who won Star Baker in this episode) was the second contestant to make (in her case, very successfully) lattice lids which concealed a filling of cream sauce with leeks and garlic mushrooms. During the preparation, Prue Leith told her "it's amazing how much garlic mushrooms will take".

My version of Cristy's winning dish is here.

Cristy won a Paul Hollywood handshake for these picnic pies. He loved the flavor and particularly called out the delight of having the filling wrapped in a sauce.
