"I loved these growing up. My grandparents lived in a small town in northern Texas where they had a German festival the first weekend of July. She always made these, and every time she came to visit we would make them with her. Your family will love these meat filled pastries"

  1. I love beirox! Did your Grandparents live in Darrouzett? I grew up in that area. And besides going to the Dutchess Fest, we sold them at our high school and my family made them all the time. I like to look at different variants of the recipe I know and this is exact to mine.
  2. Thanks for sharing this. I lived in that exact small town and have missed these since moving away. I now live in the UK and have been looking for this recipe! They are fab!


  1. I was born in Shattuck, lived in Follett. Now in Central Texas. Small world. Making these today and wanted to be sure I remembered right. I’m using frozen bread dough….wish me luck.


I am a 24 yr old wife and mother of two. Cooking is my passion and my stress reliever. I love re-inventing recipes that have been handed down thru my family. I am getting ready to start culinary school, with the hopes of one day opeing up my own bakery. <img src="">
