10 pie recipes to keep you warm at night

As we brace ourselves for a cool weather change, it's time to start looking at the best comfort foods to cook in our own kitchens.

Pies are one of those magical meals that seem to please both children (even the fussy ones!) and adults.

The best thing about making a pie at home is that you can whip something together out of leftovers or, usually, anything you need to get rid of. If you've got the main ingredient handy, you can also go nuts with extra veggies, like peas, carrots, zucchini and mushrooms, to really ramp up the nutritional value of your meal.

From the slow-cooked to the quick and easy, here are 15 pie recipes you should make at home.

1. Spinach and feta pies

These Donna Hay delights make a great dinner for kids or a top afternoon snack. The classic combo of spinach and feta is a winner with most savoury pastry-lovers.

2. Country chicken and mushroom pies

This is just the kind of recipe you would expect to come out of Maggie Beer's country kitchen. Wholesome and hearty, these pies are full of flavour.

3. Steak and stout pie

With the option to also make your own pastry, Jamie Oliver's steak and stout pie is the ultimate British comfort food for a cool night.

4. Pumpkin pies

If you're from America, you probably think a pumpkin pie is a dessert item. However, Aussie Paul West shows you how to make a savoury version of the dish with delicious winter spices.

5. Shepherd's Pie

Gordon Ramsay's shepherd's pie adds some yummy cheddar cheese into the topping, adding to the irresistible flavour of this meat and potato pie.

6.  Egg and bacon pie

Another one from Donna Hay, these egg and bacon pies work for breakfast and lunch and are sure to please hungry kids!

7. Lamb shank pie

If you have a lamb shank recipe you love, you can always pop it in a pie! This recipe will help you use all the veggies in your fridge.

8. Salmon pie

If you have some salmon you need to eat fast, you should definitely cook it up and pop it in Jamie Oliver's salmon pie.

9. Cranberry and pulled pork pie

Pork with cranberry sauce is a classic flavour combination. Why not pop it all together in a slow cooker and make a delicious pie?
