How to make it
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Grease muffin tin with butter. (This makes 12 1-cup pies, so you'll need two 6-cup tins or one 12-cup.)
- Saute the onion in olive oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Add minced garlic, cook 1 minute more. Let cool before adding to raw meat.
- In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients but the dough and 1 tablespoon of the eggs; refrigerate.
- Unroll the dough and cut out twelve 4-inch circles with a biscuit cutter or the rim of a drinking glass.
- Reroll the scraps, then cut out 12 more 2-inch circles.
- Line the bottoms and sides of the tins with the 4-inch rounds.
- Divide the filling evenly among the cups. Press the 2-inch rounds on top, pinching the edges together to seal.
- Poke a hole in the center of each pie.
- **Easy Method: You can also make the bottom crusts slightly larger, then use the overhang to wrap over the meat, leaving an opening in the center to vent. This makes for a nice rustic look as well.
- Brush with the reserved egg and bake until the tops are browned and puffed slightly, 30 to 35 minutes.
- Let cool for 15 minutes before removing the pies. Serve warm.
