Recipe by MsBindy
READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • To make crust: combine salt and flour. Cut butter into flour with fingers until it resembles coarse corn meal.
  • Sprinkle on cold water and stir until dough sticks together.
  • Form dough into a ball and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes. Do not over-chill!
  • To make Filling: Mix together the filling ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Cut the ball of dough into 6 pieces. Roll out each piece about 1/8 inch thick and Cut a 9 inch circle out of each piece.
  • Put 1/6 of the filling in the middle of each pastry circle.
  • Pull one edge over the filling to make a half-circle.
  • Seal the edges together like a turnover. Turn the edges over and press with a fork to double-seal.
  • Cut slits in the top of the pasties so that steam can escape.
  • BAke for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 F and bake for another 15-20 minutes until lightly golden.
  • Remove from oven, and allow the pasties rest for 5 minutes before serving.
