Number of Servings: 8


    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


In a small saucepan, cover carrots with water. Bring water to a boil and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Let cool and slice. Sift flour, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Add butter, and rub to the consistency of coarse crumbs. Mix in water. If dough is sticky, add more flour.
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.

    The carrots are the only things pre-cooked? The beef is put in the pasties raw? - 7/7/09
