Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Grandma had a note at the top of this recipe that she copied it from the radio in 1939. I doubt if mince meat comes packed dry anymore, but the mince meat in a jar should suffice. Just eliminate the 3 T water. The flour may have to be adjusted to have a managable dough.
