Cook Time:


  • 2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2/3 cup(s) shortening
  • 2/3 cup(s) milk
  • Filling:
  • 1/2 pound(s) ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 hard-cooked egg, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add milk, tossing with a fork until a ball forms. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato, egg, salt and pepper.
  3. • Roll out pastry into an 18-in. x 9-in. rectangle; cut into 3-in. squares. Place a rounded tablespoonful of filling in the center of each square. Fold in half, forming triangles; crimp edges to seal. Place on greased baking sheets.
  4. • Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
