DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flour and salt together into a large bowl. With 2 knives cut in the butter until the mixture is like coarse meal.
  • In a separate bowl mix the egg and sour cream. Add this to the flour mixture until the dough forms a soft, pliable ball. Wrap the dough in wax paper and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • After chilling, divide the dough in half and roll out each half to a rectangle 6"x14". Save any scraps of dough. Butter the bottom of a flat cookie sheet or jelly-roll pan. Put one sheet of the pastry onto the pan.
  • Melt butter in a 12" skillet. Add the mushrooms and cook them for 6 - 8 minutes, until lightly colored. Add the meat and continue to cook until the meat loses all trace of pink color. Combine the mushrooms, cooked meat, onion, parsley, cheese, and milk in a large mixing bowl.
  • Form the meat mixture into a ball and put it in the center of the dough. With your hands, very gently pat the meat into a loaf shape. Cover this with the second piece of pastry dough and seal the edges with a fork.
  • Moisten the dough with a pastry brush dipped in the egg and 2 Tbl milk which has been beaten together. Prick holes in the top of the loaf to allow steam to escape.
  • Roll out the scraps of dough and cut them into strips. Crisscross these over the top of the loaf to form a design. Again brush it with the egg/milk mixture.
  • Bake the loaf at 375°F for 45 minutes, when the pastry will be golden brown.
