I loved these growing up. My grandparents lived in a small town in northern Texas where they had a German festival the first weekend of July. She always made these, and every time she came to visit we would make them with her. Your family will love these meat filled pastries

Thanks for sharing this. I lived in that exact small town and have missed these since moving away. I now live in the UK and have been looking for this recipe! They are fab!
