Spicy Picnic Pasties Recipe

Publisher Photo
We've "spiced up" our picnics with these little meat pies as long as I can remember. Our family enjoys them with the extra zing of barbecue sauce. My picnic basket is never without pasties...plus a small first aid kit. (Good food doesn't do much for insect bites or scrapes!)

Directions

  1. Combine pastry ingredients as for pie crust; divide dough into four parts. Roll each part thin and cut into a 6-in. diameter circle, using a small plate as a guide. (If you prefer, substitute store-bought refrigerated pastry.)
  2. Combine filling ingredients. Place a fourth of filling in center of each dough circle; pat filling down lightly. Moisten edges of dough with water; fold circle in half to make a turnover. Seal edges well with a fork. Prick top to allow the steam to escape; place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  3. Bake at 375° for about 40 minutes. Serve-hot or cold-dipped in ketchup, barbecue or chili sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
