This recipe comes from an old church cookbook of mine. Natchitoches meat pies are a Louisiana specialty. I haven't made this recipe myself, but every Natchitoches meat pie I've had has been delicious!

My husband told me to give this 5 stars since he said it is the exact same thing he ate when he was in grade school. I liked them also, but he was so excited that he found this recipe!
