I am looking for a pasty recipe. It is made by the Finns in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

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.
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
1/2 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.

Here's link that uses lard and says it is Finnish Pasty recipe. Hope it's a match or close!
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!
