As a twist on a traditional English meat pie, these pasties will delight your family. They are so quick to assemble and disappear just as fast.—Bonnie Gelle, Grand Rapids, Minnesota

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup shortening or lard
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup cubed uncooked potatoes
  • 1/2 cup cubed uncooked rutabagas
  • 1/2 cup cubed uncooked carrots
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 pound ground beef or diced beef top sirloin steak, browned


  1. Mix together first 3 ingredients; cut in shortening to form particles the size of large peas. Gradually add milk and mix just enough to make mixture stick together. Lightly shape dough into 4 balls; let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine vegetables and meat. On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball into a circle. Place one-fourth of the vegetable/meat mixture on 1 side of each circle; brush edge of crust with water and fold half the dough over filling. Press edges together to seal. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and prick tops with a fork. Bake at 350° for 1 hour.
