I learned how to make Pasties last night, at least my mom's version. I made mine a single serving for just little 'ol me :)


1 russet potato, cubed
1 large carrot, cubed
1 slice large onion (or couple slices medium), diced
1 small can mushrooms (optional, but tasty)
1 dash garlic granules
1 Tbsp margarine (or olive oil)
good dash salt and pepper

Set oven to 450 degrees F and put all of the above in small single-serving casserole dish (I used a white round one that was 6 inches in diameter). Cook for an hour.

1 cup flour
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
dash salt
cold water to create dough

Mix together and roll out on floured surface (or pie cloth). Pull veggies out of oven and put pie crust on top. Cook an additional 20 minutes, time really depends on size. For just plain pie crust it cooks in 10 minutes, so watch it.

Tonight ate it with some home canned pears, green beans would have been nice as well. My dad likes it with pickles and ketchup, but I like it as is.
