Root Veggie Pastries
 
Ingredients
  • --- For the dough ---
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cups boiling water
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • --- For the filling ---
  • 3 pounds potatoes (your bag), chopped
  • 1.5 pounds turnips (all of your turnips), chopped
  • 4 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 pounds of your favorite ground meat
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon of red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, stir the 1 cup of butter and water until shortening is melted. Gradually stir in flour and salt until a very soft dough is formed; cover and refrigerate for 1-1/2 hours.
  2. Mix the chopped veggies, meat and seasonings together in a bowl. Divide dough into 6 equal portions.
  3. On a floured surface, roll out one portion at a time into a 10-in. circle. Mound about 2 cups filling on half of each circle; dot with 1 teaspoon butter. Moisten edges with water; fold dough over filling and press edges with a fork to seal.
  4. Place on un-greased baking sheets. Cut several slits in top of pasties.
  5. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Any leftovers make a great meal the next day - delicious hot or cold!
