When the weather starts getting cold, there is nothing quite like a warm pastie right out of the oven. This is my mom's recipe, I made it the other day and it brought back so many memories! Memories of Fall. Good memories of my dad and hunting for rabbits with him in our backyard. memories of my mom's kitchen. This recipe has a buttery flaky crust that is to-die-for!
I like dipping mine in ketchup.


Brown 1lb ground beef in a skillet. When the meat is starting to brown throw in one chopped onion.
Season with salt and pepper and some minced garlic.
Remove from heat and add chopped carrots, diced potatoes, turnips or parsnips. set aside in a separate bowl.

Pastry crust:

Mix together 3 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp sugar. Cut in 2 sticks of butter, and add 1 cup cold water. Blend with a pastry blender. Roll out on a heavily floured counter and cut into squares. Place your meat in the middle of the square and fold over into a triangle. Dip a fork into flour and press along the edges of the dough to seal it. Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes.
