From "The Best-Ever Pastry Cookbook." I consider pasties old-school Hot Pockets. YUM. Originally carried by miners so that they could take their whole meal down into the mines with them. These tend to be quite filling, so you may not need anything other than a nice salad for dinner. Times are estimates and prep time includes chilling time. Feel free to play with the filling and substitute add vegeables, use chicken, pork, turkey, whatever...You could even make them vegetarian I suppose, or vegan by omitting the butter and meat and substituting margarine or Crisco.
