Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
hamburger meat, carrots, onion, rutabaga, and potatoes and make a large
mixture.
Mom would make her crust from scratch and double or triple
batch
her pie crust recipe.

She would roll a ball of flour ( about the size of a tennis ball) and
place
the meat mixture in half of the flat circle and fold over the top and
crimp
or roll the edges to seal. She would prick the top with a fork and
repeat
this process until all the mixture and flour patty were gone. I
remember her
making at least 20 at a time.

Directions:
She would bake them in the oven until
they
were golden brown. About 45 minutes at 375'.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I believe this is a German Dish that was past down to my mom (Ruthie)
from
her family and became a family tradition as far back as I can remember
form
a little girl. Every year in the fall, mom and dad would get out this
old
grinder and attach it to the counter.

I couldn't wait for them
to
come out of the oven.

I loved to slice them open and pour dill pickle juice inside and eat
them
with dill pickles. Mom and daddy loved the bread and butter pickles.
Mom
would pack the smaller meat pasties in my lunch box cold and I would
have
them for lunch and I loved them. Mom tried to put some up in the
freezer for
the winter months but we ate them rather quickly!!!! This was an all
day
cooking process. With pre-made crust and processors today, It can be
done
rather quickly but just doesn't taste quite the same as when mom and
daddy
made them.
My mom is currently 94 years old and we will still be making meat
pasties
soon. I will attach a picture of her.
