  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons onion soup mix
  • DOUGH:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in chili sauce and soup mix; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sesame seeds if desired and salt. Cut in shortening and cheese until crumbly. Combine milk and vinegar; gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.
  3. Divide dough in half; roll out to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a lightly floured 2-1/2-in. round cutter. Place half of the circles 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Top each with a rounded tablespoonful of beef mixture; top with remaining circles. Moisten edges with water and press with a fork to seal. Cut a slit in the top of each.
  4. Bake at 425° for 12-16 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately; or cool, then wrap each in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag. Seal and freeze for up to 3 months.
  5. To use frozen meat pies: Unwrap and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 14-16 minutes or until heated through. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
