Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix pastry dough careful to not over mix. Cover dough with waxed paper and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. While dough is chilling in the refrigerator, brown the meat in a large skillet. Add onion and season with salt and pepper and Greek seasoning. Allow to cool.
  3. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface. Cut into ten equal sized circles about 5 inches in diameter. (I used a coffee can). Fill each circle with equal amounts of the filling. Fold edges over to create a semi-circle. Dampen edges with water so that the pastry will seal. Press edges with fork. Salt and pepper the tops of the pies.
  4. Place pies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
Recipe Notes

This pastry dough is quite versatile to work with and would work for most kinds of hand pies. There will be plenty of dough left to make some other yummy treat.  Feel free to experiment with different additions to the beef filling. Add carrot or even thin sliced potatoes.
