Mom's recipe for pasties. Mom's recipe for pasties.
Number of Servings: 12


    4 cups flour (not instant or self-rising)
    1 TBSP sugar
    2 tsp salt
    1¾ cups shortening (not refrigerated; do not use oil, lard, margarine or butter)
    ½ cup water
    1 TBSP white or cider vinegar
    1 large egg

    1 lb lean beef cut of your choice (I get what’s on clearance)
    4 small-medium potatoes
    4-5 carrots
    1 onion (to taste)


In large bowl, stir together flour, sugar and salt; cut in shortening with fork until crumbly. In small bowl, beat together water, vinegar and egg, add to flour mixture and stir until all ingredients are moistened. Divide dough in 12 sections and with hands shape each into a flat round patty ready for rolling; wrap each patty in plastic or waxed paper and chill at least ½ hour. When you are ready to use the crust, lightly flour both sides of the patty and roll out on lightly floured board or pastry cloth. Keeping patty round, roll to 1/4 - 1/3 inch thickness.

Dice meat, potatoes, carrots & onions into very small pieces. Cook mixture on the stove until the meat is browned and potatoes are soft.

Fill each round with approx ½ cup filling, fold over one side and crimp edge. Poke holes or cut slits for venting. Bake for 40-45 minutes at 350°.
