Our Grandson Gus likes to help out too!

On a cold winters night, (and if I’ve been a good boy,) Mrs. Rayman will make these for dinner. She knows I’m a hothouse flower, so anything that warms me up inside is great, and this is really a special treat. Grandpa Macs are good and tasty and this recipe has been in the family for years. We hope you’ll try it.


Grandpa Mac’s Patsy recipe


3 Cups Flour

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 C shortening

1 egg

7 Tbs water

2 tsp vinegar

Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder.  Cut shortening until particles are the size of peas.  Beat the egg; add water and vinegar, mix well.  Sprinkle liquid over the flour mixture, stirring with fork until dough holds together.  Divide into equal balls.  Set aside.   (or for the simpler 2013 version use purchased pre-made pie crust)



1/2 pound sirloin steak (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)

1/2 pound pork (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)

1 1/2 C diced potatoes

3/4 C diced carrots

3/4 C diced rutabaga

1/2 c C chopped onion

3 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

3 Tsp butter

1 Tsp milk.



Combine meat, veggies, salt and pepper.  Roll pastry to 10 in circle.  Add 1 C filling.  Top filling with 2 tsp butter fold over and seal edges.  Cut 3 slits in top of pasty Brush with milk.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour.   These are just as good cold–Grandpa Mac used to send them in his children’s lunches.
