Dumpling recipe or pasty

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup oil

3/4 cup water

2 small eggs

3 cups flour

Mix the above together. Put on floured surface to roll out thin. Cut into 1 inch stripes then cut across to make about 3 inches long. They are ready to cook, is this what you need? Good luck.

Cornish-Finnish-Michigan Pasties


4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup shortening

1 1/4 cups ice water

1 teaspoon salt

5 1/2 cups thinly sliced potatoes

2 carrots, shredded

1 onion

1/2 cup diced rutabagas

1 1/2 pounds ground beef

1/2 pound lean ground beef

1/2 pound lean ground pork

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 1/2 teaspoons monosodium glutamate

1 cube beef boullion

1/2 cup hot water

Whisk together flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut shortening. Make a well in the center of the mixture, and quickly stir in ice cold water. Form dough into a ball. Set aside.

Dissolve the boullion cube in the hot water. Combine uncooked vegetables, uncooked meats, salt, pepper, monosodium glutamate, and boullion.

Roll out pastry dough into 6"x8" rectangles. Place about 1 1/2 cups of filling in the center of each rectangle. Bring 6" sides together and seal. Cut a slit in the top of each pasty. Place on a dull, not black, baking pan.

Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 C) for 45 minutes.

I just made a big batch for some Finnish friends whose ancestry hails from the Ironwood, MI/Hurley, WI area. They were deemed, "Just like Grandma's!" A compliment doesn't get any better than that!
