These cute little bites of flaky dough are stuffed with a delicious ground beef

mixture.

 

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

 

You Will Need

1 pound ground beef

1/2 cup chili sauce

1 envelope onion soup mix

1/4 teaspoon salt

 

Dough:

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 to 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, optional

1-1/4 teaspoons salt

1 cup shortening

3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

3/4 cup evaporated milk

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

 

What to Do

1. In a skillet, over medium heat, cook beef until no longer pink; drain. Stir in chili sauce, soup mix

and salt; set aside.

2. In a bowl, combine flour, sesame seeds if desired and salt. Cut in shortening and cheese until

crumbly. Combine milk and vinegar; gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough

forms a ball. Divide dough in half; roll out to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. round cutter.

3. Place half of the circles 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Top each with about 1-1/2

tablespoons of beef mixture; cover with remaining circles. Moisten edges with water and press with

a fork to seal. Cut a slit in the top of each. Bake at 425°F for 12-16 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve immediately; or cool, wrap and freeze for up to 3 months.

To use frozen meat pies: Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425°F for 14-16 minutes or until

heated through.
