    The name of this recipe doesn't sound appealing but trust me it is. It's been a family French recipe for years and I would love to share it with you.

      A holiday staple.<br/>Thanks for posting the recipe! Sometimes I don't use butter... and as is the custom in our family, I don't actually measure. Many decades ago Nana (my memere) made these with the leftover Toutiere ("toot-care") pie dough. There was always plenty of dough -- she probably planned ahead.<br/>I made the meat pies for 2 cousins, one from each side of the family. I included Nun's Farts in with the pie for the only cousin who shared Nana. She said they brought tears to her eyes as she hadn't had them since her Mum's passing decades ago. She never knew them by that name (perhaps her Mum had more class.) I asked other people -- and not one person had ever heard that name! I was relieved to find there was someone out there who had and it wasn't something I inadvertently called them in restitution for parochial school education.<br/>More power to you for keeping the tradition and name alive.<br/>Bonne année!
