Companion recipe: Basic Pie Pastry


Prepare the pastry as directed, except roll the dough into a 15 x 10-inch rectangle. Cut into six 5-inch squares. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and set aside.

In a small saucepan, cook the onion in hot margarine or butter till tender but not brown. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the egg, cheese, ham, dill, pepper and garlic powder; stir in onion mixture. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the filling onto each pastry square. Moisten the edges of pastry with a little water. Fold each pastry square in half, sealing the edges well by pressing with the tines of a fork. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Prick tops. Brush lightly with milk.

Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven about 30 minutes, or till golden. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
