Ingredients:

  • 1 lb sweet potato
  • 1/2 C lightly salted butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 1 C raw sugar
  • 1/2 C heavy whipping cream

  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 3 T butter melted

Directions: Boil sweet potato whole in skin for about 1 hour, or until soft.  Run cold water over the sweet potato to remove skin.  Break sweet potato apart in a bowl.  Blend with butter with hand mixer.  Blend in sugar, cream, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla.  Beat on medium until smooth.  Pour filling into unbaked pie crust. In  separate bowl, mix together pecans, melted butter, brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon until pecans are coated.  Set aside. Wrap the outer edge of the pie crust with foil to prevent burning while baking.  Bake in in preheated oven, set at 350 degrees.  Bake for 45 – 65 minutes, or until a knife inserted into center comes out clean.  When the pie has about 20 minutes left to go, remove the foil from the outer edge and evenly place the pecans over the top of the pie.

Pastie007 zps4bdcf21d Grandma Sheris Old Fashiond Pastys

 

Ingredients:

Filling:

  • 2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 1 – 2 lg potatoes, pealed and diced into about 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 sm rutabaga – pealed and diced into about 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 C carrots, pealed and sliced
  • 2 med onions – chopped fine
  • 2 T Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 T garlic powder
  • 3/4 C beef stock
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt
  • 1 egg, beaten – place in separate bowl

Crust:

  • 1 1/2 lb lard
  • 6 C flour
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 15 – 21 T ice water

Directions:

Crust:

Combine flour and salt in a large bowl.  Cut lard into about tablespoon sized pieces.  With a pastry cutter, work lard into flour mixture until well blended.  Add ice water a little at a time until mixture forms a pliable dough.  Do not over-work dough or it will be too tough.  Divide dough into about 10 equal parts and roll each section into about an 8-inch circle.

Filling:

In a large bowl, combine all filling ingredients, except beaten egg, until well blended.

Add 1 cup of meat mixture to the dough leaving yourself enough room to fold the dough over the mixture and seal.  To seal, moisten edge with water and press with fingers or edge of fork.  Brush the top with beaten egg.  Repeat with remaining meat mixture and dough.

Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 45 minutes.  Makes about 10 pastys.  Can be frozen in tightly sealed packages for up to 6 months.
