4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound salted butter (2 sticks), cut into small pieces
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, peeled, ends removed, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup water
Nonstick cooking spray or 1/2 teaspoon shortening
1 beaten egg
To prepare pastry:In a large mixing bowl, sift
together the flour and salt. Add the butter and cut into flour until the mixture resembles
fine bread crumbs. Mix in enough cold water to hold mixture together. Form into a ball.
Wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 30-45 minutes.
To prepare the filling: In a large bowl, mix together the
uncooked ground beef, onion, salt, pepper and water. Set aside.
Assembly: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking
sheet with nonstick cooking spray or grease with shortening.
Remove pastry from refrigerator. Lightly sprinkle work
surface with flour. Roll out pastry to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into 6-7 circles
approximately 5 to 6 inches in diameter. Evenly divide the filling among the 6 circles,
placing the meat mixture on one half of the circle. Brush the edge lightly with the beaten
egg. Fold the pastry over the filling and seal by lightly crimping the edge. Brush the top
with beaten egg. Repeat with remaining filling and dough circles.
Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 50 minutes or
until golden brown on top.
