    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    I saw these made on television last night and the recipe really intrigued me. They were originally made by wives for their husbands to take to work out in the fields or mines. They are a whole meal-in-one pastry making them both sweet and savory. Maybe they are the original TV dinner LOL. The crust would be more authentic and tastier using lard, but taste better using the lard/butter combo. The wives would also make some of the pastry into letters and apply to the top of the clanger their husband's initials so they were easy to identify. They can be made with chicken as well.
