For those of you not familiar with this yummy little treat, a pasty is a hand-held pie filled with savory meat or vegetables & spices. The traditional pub version is usually dipped in batter, then deep fried. This version uses ready-made rolled pie crusts which makes them super easy (and a lot less messy!).
