 Hometown Pasty Pies

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in shortening
  • until crumbly. Whisk water, egg and vinegar; gradually add to flour
  • mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide dough
  • in quarters so that two of the portions are slightly larger than the
  • other two; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour or
  • until easy to handle.
  • Meanwhile, place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add
  • carrots; cook 6-9 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender.
  • Drain and set aside.
  • In a Dutch oven, cook beef and sausage over medium heat until meat is
  • no longer pink. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon; drain,
  • reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Saute mushrooms and onion in
  • drippings until tender. Add the soups, peas, sherry, salt, seasoned
  • salt, pepper, beef mixture and potato mixture; heat through.
  • Roll out one of the larger portions of dough to fit a 9-in. pie
  • plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry even with edge.
  • Fill with half of the meat mixture. Repeat with remaining larger
  • portion of dough and filling.
  • Roll out smaller portions of dough to fit tops of pies. Place over
  • filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry.
  • Bake at 375° for 45-50 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  • Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent
  • overbrowning if necessary. Sprinkle tops with cheese; let stand for
  • 10 minutes. Serve with sour cream. Yield: 2 pies (8 servings each).
