Scottish Meat Pies

this is one of our favorites for cool evenings. and as it can be made 
ahead and frozen, it falls into the "homemade convenience food" 
category! the actual amounts for this recipe are variable, as are the 
actual ingredients. in general, i use: 
 
1 to 2 lb.  beef, in 1/2" cubes
3   carrots, in 1/4" dices
4   potatoes, in 1/4" dices
1   leek, chopped
1 clove  garlic, minced
  worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper to taste.
 
  pastry
3 cup  flour
1-1/2 cup  vegetable shortening
1   beaten egg
5 Tbsp  cold water
2 tsp  vinegar
 
cut the shortening into the flour, then add liquid ingredients. stir 
until it pulls together, then form a ball and let rest, covered, in 
the refrigerator about 20 minutes. roll out and use as desired. 
marinate the meat for several hours in the worcestershire sauce. 
brown with the garlic and a bit of butter. add beef broth or water 
just to cover, and simmer until cooked through. add vegetables and 
simmer until heated through, but not soft. remove from heat and cool. 
 
prepare a recipe of pastry and divide into as many pies as you will 
need (one recipe will yield about 10 good-sized pies). roll dough 
into a circle. place crust on a baking sheet, and spoon about 1/2 cup 
of meat and vegetables into the middle. fold the crust over to form a 
half-circle and crimp to seal. cut a small vent in the top (we like 
to mark each person's pie with their initial). bake in a 4000 oven 
until pastry is golden (about 30 to 40 minutes). this will bake the 
meat and vegetables to a very tender perfection! serve hot with brown 
gravy (from a packet... i cheat). 
 
meat pies can be frozen before baking; wrap them well to prevent a 
loss of flavor. to heat, unwrap and place on baking sheet. put 
directly into the heated oven without defrosting, and bake until 
pastry is golden (about 40 to 50 minutes). serve hot with brown 
gravy.
