I got this from epicurious.com and it has fast become a favorite with my three children. It's delicious - what made with puff pastry isn't delicious - and unbelievably easy. Makes a great appetizer and finger food (say for a ball game or other party) as well as the way we have it, for dinner. You can experiment with different fillings, adding ingredients like mango chutney - go crazy. It's all good. Note that the beef mixture goes a long way, so you might want to have an extra box of puff pastry on hand if you want to keep making them and freeze them - or you can use extra beef mixture heated up in a roll for a sandwich, which is equally good, actually.
