Cornish Pasties…sigh… There is no more perfect savory hand pie than these scrumptious steak and veggie pies with a crispy, flaky crust that just melts in your mouth. We enjoy them year round, but they seem to be an even more special treat when winter rolls around. Cornish Pasties were created by the wives of the coal miners in Cornwall, England for their husbands to carry in their lunch pails down in the mines. Hearty, tasty and nutritious they kept the miners full during their shifts. Plus, they were easy to eat, requiring no utensils as any hand held pie. Traditionally made with steak, potatoes, carrots and rutabagas and encased in a crisp, but tender pie dough, they are a real treat! All the ingredients are raw, so when encased in the dough to bake they release all their juices making for a succulent filling. We love them!
