Cornish PastiesSubmitted by: SLCTALBOT
2 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter, diced
1/2 cup water
3/4 pounds ground beef
1 large potatoes, peeled and diced
1 small carrots
1 medium turnip
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons milk
Roll dough out until about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out 8 circles, each about 4 inches round. Do not stretch the dough.
Mix meat and vegetables together, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover half of each pasty base with the filling. Moisten pastry edges, fold pastry over the filling. Press edges together with a fork. Transfer raw pasties to a baking sheet, brush tops with milk, and make a small slit in each top to allow steam out.
Bake at 450 degrees F ( 230 degrees C) for 10 minutes. Turn oven down to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake for 35 minutes.
Number of Servings: 8
