I have been baking these pocket hand pies since the late 40's.
If you bake them ahead and want to tote them further away than your back yard, just reheat them, then wrap in foil and re-heat in a moderate oven(350) for ten minutes.
Pack them in there foil jackets into a box.
They will stay warm for about 1 hour.
The are even great eaten at room temperature, for picnics and pot luck gatherings
They are very tasty enough, as is.

How to Make GROUND MEAT POCKET PIES

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix ground beef lightly with the grated onion.
    Shape in to a large a patty in a frying pan.
    Browwn6 minutes on each side, then break into small chunks.
  2. Beat the egg slightly, stir in bread crumbs, catsup, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.
    Drizzle over the meat.
    Cook stirring constantly, for about one minute.
    Set aside.
  3. Make your 2 crust pie recipe...your own recipe.
    OR: I like the "CLASSIC CRISCO PIE CRUST"
    recipe on Just A Pinch! Never fails!
    Roll out 1/2 of crust recipe to a 12 inch square.
    Then cut into 4..six inch squares.
    Spoon about a 1/4 cup(or less) onto
    the center of each square.
    Fold over to make a pie.
    Press edges firmly with a fork to seal.
    Trim if needed.
    Repeat with remaining pastry and meat mixture.
    Repeat with the other half of dough.
  4. Place pies on an ungreased cookie sheet ..
    or in pie pans.
    Bake in a hot oven at 400F for about
    20 minutes.
    Till golden.
  5. Serve warm or even cold if on a camping trip.
    Cold or warm.. they fit right in your pocket.
    Or do like we did on the farm,
    with home made pasties
    wrap warm patty's
    in foil and put on your head, under your hat..
    the will stay warm for a lunch in the field!!
  6. This picture is the left over scrap dough,
    that we bake tiny cinnamon rolls,
    for noshing right from the oven!
    YUMMY!!
    Waste not..Want not!....LOL
