  9. Roll out again into rectangle.
  10. Continue rolling and folding five times.
  11. Rewrap in plastic; return to refrigerator for 1 hour.
  12. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  13. Grease baking sheet.
  14. Roll dough out to 1/8-inch thickness.
  15. Cut dough using 3 1/2-inch round cutter.
  16. Place about 1 tablespoon of filling on each pastry circle.
  17. Fold dough over making half moons; press together edges together using ice water to seal.
  18. Place pies on baking sheet.
  19. Whisk together egg yolk and 2 tblsps water; brush pies with egg wash.
  20. Bake about 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
  21. For Meat Filling: sauté onion in 2 tablespoons butter until soft.
  22. Add ground beef and sear until light gravy forms.

  26. Boil the potatoes in their jackets, then peel and mash them.
  27. Let cool slightly.
  28. Season with plenty of salt and pepper and mix in the onions and egg.
  29. For Mushroom Filling: In a pan or skillet, saute the mushrooms, onion, and shallots in the butter until the onion is translucent.
  30. Add the lemon juice, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  31. Continue to cook, stirring until nearly all the moisture is evaporated.
  32. Cool mixture slightly and mix in cream cheese or mashed potato.
  33. I like to sprinkle poppy seeds over the egg washed pastries filled with the mushroom filling.
  34. Note: these pastries are very good made with phyllo pastry, too.
