    We could buy these at a local bakery where I was growing up. I loved them and would often detour by the bakery after school to get one.

      My husband is English and loves pasties, which are hard to come by in Oklahoma! I made this using premade pie crusts, and doubled the filling ingredients. I split four premade crusts in half and made eight pasties. They were terrific!

      I thought these were really really tasty! I used a whole lb. of ground beef, 2 large red potatoes, a large yellow onion, double spices, a few dashes worchestershire and some garlic powder... and added carrot. We made them smaller than 6" diameter, prob more about 4", which worked great because we made them as a heavy appetizer for a party and the recipe made about 25. DO NOT forget the mango chutney and make some kind of beef gravy- really adds great flavor! The dough turned out great- used a tip from America's Test Kitchen and substituted half the water for vodka= perfect!

      Using raw filling as opposed to pre-cooked really did make a difference; the pasties were much juicier than I've had. However, I found the filling itself fairly bland. I added some Worcestershire sauce beforehand, but no dice. I do plan on making this again to tweak the original recipe- for example, maybe with the addition of fresh herbs and garlic instead of dried, or perhaps even a crushed beef bouillon cube.
