Listening to NPR last weekend and they were profiling Michigan's Upper Peninsula. They interviewed the owner of Lawry's Pasties and had his recipe posted on their site. They aren't they greatest looking I've seen, but damn! Sure tasted as good as anything I've brought home with me. Not bad for a Troll!
Makes 4 pasties
2 cups flour
2/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup water
Cut shortening into flour and salt, add water and knead until well blended. Form into four balls and chill.
Roll into four circles.
Preheat oven to 400.
3/4 lb ground chuck or cubed steak
3 cups diced potatoes
1/2 cup each diced onion and rutabaga
2 tablespoons dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Divide into 4 equal portions and place in center of each crust. Fold over and seal edges. Bake at 400 for 50 -60 minutes.
