3 rounds! and more...

Hello my friends!!
How about mini pies!? Have you tried this? Do you like them??
I made eight pies first, and twice more after that, made another six little pies, each time ...
 all gone!
 Here's the recipe I used, if you are interested:
♥ for THE DOUGH:
   1 1/4 cup strained flour
   1/2 cup cold butter
   2 or 3 tablespoons cold water
   1/4 teaspoon salt,
Add the flour in a medium bowl.
Use a pastry cutter or fork to cut the butter into the flour.
Sprinkle the 2-3 tablespoons of cold water in the bowl.
Mix the ingredients together until thoroughly combined and away from the bowl.
You may add an extra tablespoon of water, if needed.
Place the dough in the refrigerator for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until firm.
♥ THE FILLING - in a large pan:
   1 onion, chopped and fried, add
   2 potatoes cut in little cubes,
   1 can green peas,
   1/2 chopped carrot, (or any other veggies you love, but small amounts of: mushrooms, peppers, eggplant, broccoli, etc.)

!! ♥ add any meat you want, in small pieces, Deli or even leftovers: ham, meatballs, steak or grill.

  Cook covered and add water little by little to steam all this and put away the pan when potatoes are soft.
  Let it cool a bit.
  Preheat the oven to to 345ºF;
  Soft oil the containers for pies;
  Divide the dough into equal parts, for how many small pans you have, and from each part cut 1/3 to roll the lid;
  Roll the dough in round shapes, lining the pans, add filling, cover, brush the pastry with egg,
  Bake for 30 min....

                                                                     (Easy as a pie)
Happy sewing!!
