DIRECTIONS

  • Note: I used our KitchenAid stand up mixer with dough hook to prep the dough.
  • Combine the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the cold shredded butter and toss with the flour and salt mixture.
  • Slowly add the cold liquid while mixing the dough. If the mixture is too dry add a little bit of water but do not overwork the dough. Gather the dough into a ball.
  • Wrap in a large gallon-size Ziploc bag or use plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight. <<---I refrigerated the dough for approximately six hours with no problems to report.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • After the dough has refrigerated, portion the chilled dough out into 8 pieces.
  • One a floured board use a rolling and roll each piece out into 6-7" inch circle.
  • Divide and spoon the filling of your choice onto one side of each circle. Fold over the crust to a half moon shape. Pinch the edges or crimp edges with fork to seal.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes depending on the size pasties you make.
  • Leftover pasties freeze well.
