      Deeeelish! Though it was a bit dry. Not sure what to do to change that? But otherwise it was wonderful and tasty... will definitely make it again!

      These were really, really tasty. My girls (3 & 5 yo) and I loved them, and my husband who rarely has a meal without meat also devoured his and was really surprised when I told him they were vegetarian. I used about 1/4 t more of each spice and used Pasty Pastry for Cornish Miners' Pasties (Pasty Pastry for Cornish Miners' Pasties).

      These are very pleasant! Love the sweet of the carrot with the spices. I couldn't resist making mine a little spicier using hot paprika. Satisfying but not heavy. Thanks so much!
