Pasties are a traditional cornish hand pie made popular in the mining and timber towns of early America. Most often containing beef or pork along with root vegetables like rutabaga, potatoes, and carrots pasties were something that could easily be prepared and carried to work for a filing lunch on the job site. In the U.S. they are most commonly found in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and other northern states.Read More
OK, before all my mexican-american friends start yelling at me, I know this only bears a passing resemblance to a tamale. I didn't come up with the name or the recipe, I found it here, and you can complain to them!
That being said, these came out amazingly good. The dough was a little dry, could probably use a bit more chicken broth next time. The flavor was amazing, and the fact that they are so nicely self contained means I can do smaller versions for appetizers, or larger ones in a big muffin tin for larger portions. The crust is so good I think it will work as a way for me to do quiches in the future as well. An amazing new slice of FatBoyHeaven!
