Hand Pies

I pulled this recipe out of a MomSense magazine, but can't find it anywhere online.  This is a different recipe that my kids really love:

The ingredients:
1 pound ground beef
1/2 large onion, diced
1 cup frozen peas and carrots, thawed
1 cup frozen hash browns, thawed
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1.2 tsp worcestershire
3 tbs tomato paste
2 nine inch pie crusts (I use this recipe)

To make:
Brown beef with onions.  Add veggies, potatoes and seasonings.  Cook, stirring often, until warmed through.  Mash mixture slightly with a fork and let filling cool slightly before proceeding.

Roll out crusts into large squares.  Cut each crust into four small squares and place 1/2 cup of filling in each.  Fold in half diagonally,  seal and crimp edges with a fork.  Place a slit in the top to vent.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Makes 8 pies.

I freeze the filling and crusts separately.
