Beef Pasties With Potatoes and Carrots

This is one dish I remember from my childhood except my Grandma would make the dough from scratch. I did something different today and used frozen puff pastry. The crust is light and flaky. Sometimes I will use the Pillsbury pie crusts in the package to save time.

Beef Pasties

1 lb ground beef browned
1/2 onion diced (brown with the beef)
1 carrot finely chopped into coins
salt and pepper
1 pkg Pepridge Farms Puff Pastry

Defrost pastry on the counter top for 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Brown the beef and onion. Add the carrot and potatoes and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Unwrap dough and cut each dough into 4's. In each pocket add about 2-3 TBSP in the middle. Fold up the edges making a triangle. Use water on your fingertip to seal the triangle. Poke holes on the top of each triangle to let steam escape. Make sure the edges are sealed. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until veggies are done.
