    Went to the UP to visit a friend back in our college days and had my one and only pasty. Loved it - just ate it plain! But I've been dying to make them myself. Thanks for a great recipe...might have to wait until Fall rolls back around because these are pretty hearty.

    thanks for the recipe... am collecting a few and look forward to my first attempt soon... I dated a girl many long years ago whose grandparents would make like a billion pasties, wrap in foil and freeze; then pass 'em out to all their friends and family... we hoarded and treasured every one of 'em! I know everyone else likes theirs with ketchup, but I've always been partial to mustard and tobasco... same as with Natchitoches meat pies :)

    Oh, yes, pasties are the best! I used to make them every Halloween, so that we could devour them before taking the kids out trick or treating! And, I remember taking them to Mason, MI a short drive away from our campground @ that time; there was an old fashioned Five and Dime with a killer toyshop and nut/candy counter, and the Pasty shop a door or 2 down! We'd get our pasties and walk across the street to the Municipal Building and picnic on the lawn (right next to the cannon!) What wonderful memories! The real, old fashioned pasties have lard in the pastry, though!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. We have a local tourist site that serves these. They are popular in English and Irish cuisine, too. I have always enjoyed these--I'll have to give them a try at home.
