Saucer Pie
Pies and Pastries
Cumberland, Westmorland

Small, thin, meat pies made in a saucer. As they cook very quickly they give a handy way of using up leftovers at the end of a baking session (White 1932, etc)

The name appears to orginate in the USA, occuring repeatedly in various early-learing books edited by George Frederick Holmes from the 1870's onwards, and in this campaigning poem by Mrs ADT Whitney from her 'Mother Goose for Grown Folks' of about 1890
Shall we hint at Lady-Horners,
Who in their exclusive corners
Think the world is only made of upper-crust?
To prove that Jack's no bigger boy than Jill;
And that she won't sit by
With her little saucer pie.
While he from the Great Pasty picks his fill.
